Til Ki Chutney–Uttarakhand

Today we are visiting the state of Uttarakhand, previously known as Uttaranchal. Uttarakhand is a one of the newer states formed in November 2000. Uttarakhand has a big significance as two of the major Indian rivers originate here – Ganga, the Gangotri and Yamuna, the Yamunotri. Another important place in Uttarakhand are the 2 holy places – Kedarnath and Badrinath. Today’s recipe is a simple chutney and I got this recipe from here. Chutneys are a boon. They pack so much flavor, but very less work. They are beautiful accompaniment that takes the main dish to the next level.. Can you imagine dosa without chutney?? Bonda without chutney?? idli without chutney?? bajji without chutney?? With and without chutney makes a big difference to the experience of the main dish.. So here is another such chutney which is a delicious one with bajji, idli, dosa, bonda.. It also makes a great dips with chips, nachos etc.. Try this very flavorful one and you will enjoy both making and relishing it..
