  1. That’s a very useful tangy accompaniment always of importance with any fritters, sandwiches almost any snacks. A bottle in the refrigerator is mandatory. If you keep it more than a week, do you replace lemon with tamarind or store without lemon in the mix and add when serving? Vani that bottle is too cute. Loved the beautiful colour of the chutney dear.

  2. When we made a chuntey in mixer with phudina or coriander, the color is totally changed not green. When we put 2-3 ice cube in mixer then chutney’s color is real green.
