My Notes:

  • Don't overcook potatoes, it shouldn't be mushy thats the speciality of this chutney.
  • You can even add 1/2 tsp sambar powder for extra flavour.
  • If you dont prefer gingelly oil, then add 1 tbsp cooking oil itself.
  • This is mildly spicy, adjust red chillies according to your taste.
