Red chilli chutney Recipe

Last Updated on

This fiery red chili chutney recipe is a sure accompaniment for breakfast dishes like adai dosa, ragi dosa, rava idli, or even wheat pancakes, appe and utappam. Coconut need not be added and is super quick to make. The level of spice can be adjusted to taste, however, if we make it extra hot, a little amount of chutney goes a long way.
