    daisy M's Note:

    It is a fiery hot condiment from South India. Spice lovers have it with dosas or idlis. It is reaallly hot. I know some people who make it without the cilantro- eeks. If you are a chili wuss, do not try this. I eat this if I want an adrenaline rush and it makes my lips burn. But I have it anyway... A thinned down version of this chutney can be used as a marinade for paneer and chicken.
