BM# 63: Journey through the Cuisines 

Week 2: Rajasthani Cuisine 

Day 12: L for Lehsun Chutney

We are already in the middle of the week with Rajasthani cuisine. Today’s dish is a super spicy and delicious Garlic chutney made in the Rajasthani style. It is a great condiment to serve with rotis or to use as a spread for sandwiches.

When I started researching for Journey through the Cuisines, the first step was to decide the 4 states I wanted to cook from. Then find the dishes in alphabetical order and the final step was to look for recipes from authentic sources. So I tried to cook from recipes that were posted by bloggers from respective states. Hence most of my Bengali dishes were from Bengali bloggers Sandeepa and Soma. I also tried to stick to the recipe as much as possible without many substitutions except for may be adjusting the ingredient quantities.

Even though I found quite a few different recipes for garlic chutney, this recipe made from a Rajasthani blogger, Shwetha Agrawal, sounded more authentic and that’s what I followed.

This chutney was quite strong the first time I tried it. It almost cleared up my sinuses instantly and I almost didn’t want to post it today. But after letting it sit in the fridge, it mellowed down and tasted spicy but not with a really strong garlic flavor. Apart from using as a spread, I also used it instead of ginger~garlic paste in some rice dishes and it tasted awesome.

Rajasthani Garlic Chutney
Instructions
  1. Soak red chilies and coriander seeds in warm water for at least 30 minutes. Drain and add to the blender along with garlic, lemon juice, salt, sugar, tomato and cilantro leaves.
  2. Grind to a smooth paste with little water. Do not add too much water, the water in tomato is usually enough to get a smooth paste.
  3. Heat the mustard oil in a small saucepan until hot. Turn off the heat and add the ground garlic mixture. Mix well and let cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Here I made some jowar (and atta) rotis and served the chutney with it.

  1. Lehsun chtney really looks so flavorful and spicy.Would have tasted yummy with the roti.Love the moody images and the lightening in the pics.

  2. Yet another one of your recipes, I am bookmarking to make for sure. The jowar roti combo was an excellent choice!

  3. Oh, so this is the recipe you mentioned in your comment on my ellipaya karam post. Even I felt the same way and did not want to post my garlic recipe. Lehsun chutney is mouthwatering.

  4. I guess every region in India has a version of garlic based condiment and this chutney must be a flavor addition to the table, especially for garlic lovers.I remember Usha also mentioning the flavor of the garlic chutney being stronger on the day it is made. Need to remember it.☺

  5. I made the same but the Maharashtrian equivalent. This is just as fiery and definitely not for my taste buds. But my husband will be happy to enjoy it!

  6. I love garlic in most of its forms and this chutney looks so good. I would love it with the Jowar Roti as you have shown. I am a big fan of Rajasthani food, and now I am drooling over this spicy chutney. Well made!!

  7. Garlic lovers would love this chutney and will not mind the strong flavor at all. I will be one of them.

  8. lipsmacking condiment ! we love with jowari rotis.. and this is so well captured.. I make a drier version of this with pretty much similar ingredients.. must post soon…

  9. Oh how I love this condiment, bread, roti , rice anything and everything tastes delicious with this chutney. And what beautiful clicks Pavani..I am just scrolling.
