Potatoe chutney

This chutney has eluded me for so long. But I have finally got the nick of it.

It is a perfect side dish to go with Kichari… the recipe on how to make kichari can also be found on the blog under the rice section.

If you want a stronger option you are more than welcome to add chillies.

You don’t have to used the masala’s I use. You can use what is available to you or what you have in your cupboard. I use these masala’s on a daily basis, so I am used to them and they give off such a lovely aroma while you are cooking.
