  1. in the ingredients u have mentioned 4 green chillies..but in the procedure u have told to add red chillies what is correct??

    thanx in advance

  2. Hi,

    It is a typographical error. It should be green chillies. Thank you for pointing out. However you can use either green or red chillies. If you use green chillies the colour will be green and if you use red chillies, the chutney look slightly dark.
