This garlic dip is one for garlic lovers. With 40 cloves of garlic it is not for the faint hearted!
I use dried red Kashmiri chillies and leave the seeds in the chillies but feel free to remove the seeds if you like a less hot chutney.
The garlic chutney takes on the color of the vibrant Kashmiri chillies giving a beautiful color to brighten any dish.
Once you have blended the garlic and chillies you have a nice red garlic dip but adding the fried mustard seeds with the curry leaves at the end just finishes the dip off perfectly and you will find that this combination brings out all of the flavors wonderfully.
I serve this 40 clove garlic chutney with dosas and idlis but it also is a great dip to serve with poppadoms. As this is a very spicy dip I would suggest serving it with maybe a yogurt raita to give a variation in flavors and spices. The raita would definitely work well with all the spices in my 40 clove garlic dip.
