Serve hot with Coconut Rice and Devil Chutney.

DEVIL CHUTNEY (HELL’S FLAME CHUTNEY)

Devil Chutney is a fiery red chutney . Its bright red colour often leads people to think that is very pungent and spicy, when actually it is sweetish and only slightly pungent The vinegar and sugar react with the onion and red chilly to produce the bright red colour. It is also known as HELL FIRE OR HELL’S FLAME CHUTNEY due to its vivid colour.

2 medium size onions chopped roughly

2 red chillies2 teaspoons sugar

A pinch of salt

2 tablespoons vinegar

Grind all the above ingredients together till smooth. If chutney is too thick add a little more vinegar. Serve with Coconut Rice
