Although I was never into food and cooking before marriage. But when I started this new phase and was completely alone at home. I had no choice but to take out the finest recipes from the internet, called my mother and cousins for the best dishes they know and  started trying them one by one. Believe me it all about practicing. The more you cook , the better would it turn out to be every time. This one is an old recipe of one of the most simple yet the tastiest chatnis I have ever made. I thought to share it step by step. It has been my husband’s favourite even when he always have a NO-NO to all other chatnis and pickles.
