    Chili is one of the main ingredients here.Chili(Either green chili or dried red chili) is most commonly used in every recipe.Be it podi, thogayal, sambar, kootu, poriyal in one or the other form.Spice makes the food digest and gives a kick to the food instead of being bland.Spice when combined with salt and proper tanginess makes the food more palatable
           Making of chutney is an easy task for anybody who are familiar. For those who don't know, I am telling you, just spend 10 minutes of your valuable time.Then use this versatile side in any of your favorites like idli, dosa,upma, idiyappam,paniyaram, chapati or even in a sandwich as a spread.There are many varieties in chutney so my little one call it red, white and green.she is not aware of the ingredient that goes in so she calls out that way.Whatever color it is, each one is unique in the ingredients and taste really delicious.
