- You can also add curry leaves to this chutney.
- I suggest using whole urad dal while sauteing, that gives better flavor than split ones.
- You can even add 2 garlic cloves while sauteing but it is optional.
caution: Flaxseeds pops out from oil and could cause burn. So i suggest keeping tomatoes ready so that if it starts popping, put in tomatoes to control popping.
