Sweet n Spicy Red Chutney


This sweet n spicy red chutney is a perfect accompniment for dipping with your favorite fried snacks and is perfect for topping chana chaats and pani puri. It is a perfect balance of sweet with a kick and the beautiful pop of red color is spectacular. This is a family recipe and one of the most delicious chutneys you will ever make. Originally made with fur (jaggery) i have substituted that with brown sugar for convenience. You can use it to a company fried snacks and use it on other savory snacks like chaat and bhel puri, etc. My favorite use for this chutney is in meethi puri or dahi puri, which is fried puffed semilna fritter filled with chickpeas and assorted chutneys.
