My experience with lahsun ki chutney

When we went on a Rajasthan tour a year before. I was fascinated by rajsthani Lahsun ki Chutney. It had a spicy and garlicky flavor. I am a spice lover. It motivates me to try my hands on Garlic Chutney. Now, it is my favorite chutney at my home. I always try to decorate my dining table with spicy chutneys and pickles. Whenever I make this chutney at home, I use it in curries. Also use it as dip with Indian snacks like Samosa/Kachori/Pakora/Fries. It gives fullness to our meal.
