Lasun Chutney or Garlic Chutney is what I have been planning to make for ages. But have got sidetracked on a regular basis. The reason may be that I do not enjoy it as much the rest of my family. I know it is good for the heart etc but ….
So the day has finally dawned when I made it. Basically, it needed only 10-15 minutes as all my ingredients were ready.
½ cup dry coconut
¼ cup puthane or roasted gram
1/3 cup of ground nuts
14 cloves of garlic, peeled
Red chilli powder(adjust as per taste)
1. In the microwave heat the coconut for 2 minutes. Stir one in between. The coconut will get brittle when it cools down.
2. Roasted the ground nuts till they give a nice aroma. Cool.
3. There is no need to roast the puthane but since Goa is quite humid I just heated the puthane in the oven for 1 minute. Cool.
4. Grind in the mixer all the ingredients with the dry blade. Please note that the mixture gets quite oily and jams up a bit. Stir up the mixture a bit and grind.
Taste good with anything!!
