I liked the sound of your chutney and am trying it out right now. It would have been easier to follow with some guidelines of when to add the consecutive ingredients - especially the doneness of onion, chow chow and tomatoes before the next ingredient is added. Either a description or photos. Maybe you could add these at some time. Will post on how the chutney turns out after it's done and eaten!


Unknown said...

HI! I made the chutney, and it turned out great! My kids liked it too :) So thanks for sharing. PLease put up the additional guidelines whenever possible. I think it may make the end result even better, especially as we need to make it slowly.

Thanks again!

Thanks Preeti...,also for the feed back,will put in more guidelines.On another note I am positive you are more confident and a pro with the chutney now that you tried making it by your taste and intuition.
