I've never had a chutney liked this before, and I liked it. It complimented the lentils, rice and caramelized onions that I served it with very well. I did not find it very spicy at all, but the radish flavor really came through after sitting in the fridge for a while.

Very intersting recipe. I had some radishes in my house and I was curious of what I could do with it that would be diffrent, and this fit the bill. Was quite spicy, a bit to spicy for my mom but I enjoyed it enough for both of us lol.
