This is a very hot chutney. Add or reduce red chillies according to your taste. Optional – To bring down the heat, if you want can substitute red chilli powder with kashmiri chilli powder. It goes very well with Kappa Puzhungiyathu /Boiled Tapioca or with Idili /Dosa or with Rice greul /Kanji or as a relish with curd rice.
