Garlic Chutney | Lahsun ki Chutney

Garlic Chutney

Garlic chutney or lahsun ki chutney is a spicy yet little tangy chutney. This is a Rajasthani dish served along with roti & can also be served with rice. There are 2methods of making this chutney & I’m sharing one version that requires cooking on stove, as the other one doesn’t need any cooking.
