Pandu Mirapakaya Pachadi - Red Chilli Chutney - Spicy chutney for idli, dosa and roti

When I saw this in Gayu's place Ezcookbook. I bookmarked it immediately.. It is new to me to use fresh red chillies in chutneys. So I was so anxious to try this out. I had small red chillies which is spicier so I have used in less qty so the color is not same as what she had but I loved the spiciness of the chutney. I had this with idli. It is so perfect.
