Marwari Hot Garlic Chutney

This is one hot and spicy Indian condiment which makes Indian food more interesting. During our trips to Rajasthan, we have had various versions of this chutney, both in dry and paste form. This is a staple condiment there and served with almost every meal. Hot phulkas smeared with this chutney, makes a delicious quick snack in itself. 

How is it made?

It is made with garlic, dry red chillies, ginger, oil, salt, jaggery and lemon juice. Pairs perfectly well with simple chapatis or parathas (Indian flatbreads), dal rice, khichdi, and almost every Indian food. To make this, soak dry red chillies for half an hour in hot water. Grind them along with the garlic and that soaked water. Heat oil and add the garlic chilli paste. Cook it on medium flame until the sides release oil and then cover and cook it for some more time on low flame until the oil floats on top. Then add salt and sugar. Remove from heat, let it cool and then add lemon juice. Enjoy!

The heat/use of chillies could be reduced as per preference. The use of oil is a bit more, so it cooks well and preserves well for a few months.

How to store it?

This Marwari hot garlic chutney could be stored in an airtight jar for upto 3 months in refrigerator.
