Garlic chutney

Here is the recipe for Mangalore style garlic chutney. This spicy, tangy chutney can be paired with Idli, dosa, Uttappam, Appam, Masala Paniyaram etc. In this recipe garlic and dry byadagi chilli is used as main ingredients. You can replace byadagi chilli with Kashmiri red chilly powder.
