Coming from a very typical marathi household, I have spent most of the days eating dry chutneys in particular. I remember my Ajji had group of friends who would always bring different chutneys home on their visit. And then another one would be made to return the box that came bearing chutney gifts. Most of the times, it would either be pickle or this Shengdanyachi chutney that went into the box. I love this chutney. You know that feeling when you come home hungry and you find your favorite food. The joy you feel, yes, I feel that joy every time I see this chutney. The pungent garlicky taste and the color because of the red chilies is really hypnotic I tell you.
