My mom places this chutney when she makes "naivedyache taaT" - an offering to God. So this chutney does not have any garlic or onion.
3 green chilies (or per taste)
1" ginger, peeled & chopped
salt to taste
1. Grind all the ingredients except lemon, preferably without water.
1. This chutney is not meant to have watery consistency as it's a part of the main meal. It needs to stay in one place.
2. Do not grind this chutney too finely. The cumin seeds should be ground completely but still there should be a little coarse texture of coconut.
