Green Chutney, Imli Chutney, Chilli Garlic Chutney ~ Chutneys for Chats

When I made Bun Samosa, I saw that I had to make the chat chutneys all over again. Because these were differently made from what I normally make. I know it must just be just an ingreidnet or two different. Yet it was different. I adapted the Bun Samosa from Vaishali and these chutneys are also from her.

It just goes to show how many different variations we can have for these simple chutneys that peps up those tangy, tantalizing Chats. I wanted to have a separate post as to record them as otherwise they just get lost!

Being a Sunday, I had plans for making new things, hopefully they should work out as expected.
