BM #107 Week 2 Day 2 - 

For day 2, I have this nutritious chutney which is a staple in many families, specially during the season. If I am not wrong, they are available fresh around the winter months in many parts of India. Please correct me on this, if needed.

I have made this chutney before using different spices. The depth of flavor is so different in both of these variations.
