This chutney is simple in its ingredients, but the balance is hard to get right. It takes much practice and will become your signature chat dressing. Some like it sweet, some like it hot. In Mowgli, with me at the helm, I like it sweet with the pungent kick of black salt. This is what brings zing to chat.
