Red Chutney(Dates Tamarind) and Green Chutney(Coriander Mint)


Does anyone say no to chats?! I am not a crazy fan of chats but then few items like dahi poori and pav bhaji are my fav. One fine day when I was craving for a chat and it was raining outside, I decided to give a try at home myself. So my first attempt was to make these chutneys ready. And these chutneys comes in handy for sandwiches too, it gives a nice flavour to it.Stay tuned for the low fat chats coming up soon here...so get ready with ur chutneys and store them in advance :)
