Spicy Red Chili Chutney - Vara Milagai Chutney

Spicy Red Chili Chutney - Vara Milagai Chutney, this is one of the simple and easy to make chutney. This is a hot and spicy chutney that goes well with all the tiffin items like idli, dosa, chapati, utappam etc. Who will not like spicy chutney in rainy season or in winter. This chutney is best to make in those seasons. In this chutney, I have added few garlic cloves. If you do not want to add garlic, you can substitute with few shallots.

Spicy Red Chili Chutney - Vara Milagai Chutney

Preparation Time : Nil | Cooking Time : 20 Minutes | Serves : 4

Dry Red Chili - 15 No.
Garlic - 5 to 6 Cloves
Tamarind - small piece
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp.
Cumin Powder - 1/4 tsp.
Gingelly Oil - 1 tbsp.
Salt to taste

1. Boil 1/4 cup of water and add the dry red chilies to it. Allow the dry red chilies to cook. Let the water dries up.
2. Roughly chop the garlic and add it to a blender. Soak the tamarind in little water for about 5 minutes.
3. Add the cooked chilies, soaked tamarind, coriander powder, cumin powder and salt to garlic in the blender.
4. Grind it to make a smooth paste. Add little water while grinding. You can add the water in which tamarind was soaked. Heat oil in a pan.
5. Add the ground chili paste to the oil. Saute it on medium flame.
6. Keep stirring to avoid sticking to the pan. After few minutes, the water will dry up and oil will start to separate. Once oil separates, switch off the flame.

Hot and Spicy Red Chili Chutney - Vara Milagai Chutney is ready to serve with any tiffin item.

1. You can substitute garlic with shallots.
2. I cooked the chilies, just to make them grind properly as I did not have enough time to soak it in water. If you have planned for making the chutney well before, then just soak the chilies in hot water for half an hour.
3. I have added coriander and cumin powders, just for the flavor. If you do not like it, you can skip that.
