This garlic chutney is my all time favorite ,which i learnt from my mom. This is a quite popular chutney in Madurai, my home town. Almost all the household make this,also we can get this in all road side eatery outlets too. Somehow my husband and kids don’t prefer this garlic chutney,since it is bit spicy from the normal one i make. So i don’t make often at home. Few days back when i made dosa for dinner, i thought of making this one for me . I enjoyed this with dosa and my family had dosa with coconut chutney!!
