Chef's Notes:

  • You can add coconut if desired to the chutney 
  • The more spicy the chutney is , the more taste it acquires
  • You can even toss in some garlic cloves if desired , but be aware of the smell 
  • A small piece of onion is just enough for the taste , don't add too much of onion or garlic to the pickle
