Fried Garlic Chutney


This is a garlic chutney that I got from Copeland Marks' Indian & Chinese Cooking from the Himalayan Rim. It has a very distinctive flavor and will give you a case of garlic breath that you (and those around you) will enjoy for some time. A very little bit can be used to flavor a large amount of rice. It is Gluten-Free and contains no preservatives.



  1. Prepare the garlic either by dicing or pressing into a paste
  2. Mix in the water, chili powder, salt, and coriander.
  3. Heat the oil/ghee in a small skillet on low heat.
  4. Add the cumin, mustard, hing and cook for 10 seconds.
  5. Add the garlic paste and stir-fry on medium heat for 2 minutes, or until the garlic begins to turn golden brown.
  6. Remove from heat and store in refrigerator in a jar with a tight cover.
  7. Serve as a condiment.
