Excellent chutney, Mini! Despite patanjali's comments, I made this WITH the sugar, and I'm glad I did! This chutney has a wonderful tangy, yet subtly sweet taste that's just perfect for fresh, soft bread! My mom went absolutely nuts over this chutney too :-) One note: This makes less than 2 cups of chutney. Probably 1 to 1 1/2 cup actually.
After tasting this, I can tell you that the sugar is completely unnecessary in this recipe. Yuck.
