We are all familiar with Peanut Chutney in all its variety, right? For us at home, Idli and Dosa are not complete without Peanut Chutney. I was getting a little bored to eat the same old peanut chutney and thought of trying this walnut chutney a try. I remember a friend referring to walnut chutney a few years back, but have never given thought to it since. Now I know how flavorful this chutney is and we are kind of hooked on to it. Who can refuse the goodness of walnut in our diet? Give it a try and let me know what you think about this.
