Garlic Scapes Chutney

I spotted these beautiful garlic scapes at our farmers market. They looked distinctly different than fresh garlic that we get in Mumbai during winter. The farmer told me that they come in two variety - local and California. He gave me both of them. He suggested making pesto with it. I gave that suggestion - my very own Indian makeover. I used some for making chutney to be served with idlies and I made "Kolhapuri Thecha" with the remaining.
