Walnut chutney - Walnut dip - Side dish for idli, dosa, upma - Chuntney recipes - Dip recipes - No Onion, No garlic recipes

After my tomato cashew chutney I wanted to try Walnut. Initially I was worried about raw taste of walnut but I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. in fact no one can taste walnut. If you are the person who is not a big fan of just eating raw walnut this is one way to include walnut as part of your diet. This chutney goes very well with Idli or dosa. I have reduced number of chillies as my family is not on spicy side. But felt it would be nicer if this chutney is on the spicier side
