Recipe Notes
  1. This is a very hot chutney. So if you are uncomfortable with the heat, get chillies that are of less heat. I used long medium heat chillies in this recipe.
  2. If you can very finely chop the onion, add it directly to the ground chilli and ginger chutney. Else pulse it a bit.
  3. The consistency of hmarcha rawat chutney should be thick, coarse and chunky. So if you are using a blender, carefully pulse it.
