Lemongrass & Garlic Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 43 / #100chutneys

Lemongrass is one of my favourite herb and the fragrant lemony smell itself makes me refreshing. When I am down with cold or tiredness, a simple lemongrass tea without any sweetner is my one of the best Home remedy. Apart from the fresh ones, lemongrass is also available in the form of powder and oil. I have also shared few recipe links in the below using both fresh lemongrass and powder. In my today's Chutney series, I have used the fresh lemongrass along with garlic to give a spicy, tangy and flavourful chutney. This chutney pairs perfectly with Idly and Dosa. The ingredients are sautéed in a gingelly oil and ground into paste by adding fresh coriander leaves. The ground chutney is further cooked in a Thalimpu which helps to enhance the taste and also gives a lovely colour to the chutney. Adjust the quantity of chilli according to taste bud.
