This khurasni chutney is totally prepared in traditional Maharashtrian style.To add more,whenever there is an marriage function in any marathi homes,this chutney is prepared prior to the ceremony in large amount and the preparation of chutney is the must thing…The real taste of the chutney comes when it is pounded in mortar and pestle or in marathi we say khalbattyat kutun kelili chutney or patyawar bhardun kelili khurasnichi chutney…

But nowadays due to scarcity of time or say for quick completion of cooking we go for mixer grindings….

You can prepare it by using just chillies and garlics also…and this also are the best because this chutney lasts for many days.
