Losoni chutney is a traditional GSB preparation. Losoni means garlic.The main ingredient of this chutney is coconut infused with the flavor of garlic.I just love garlic and we use it in most of our cooking.Coconut is abundant in South India and we have a small coconut patch at our place with 12 trees,so I need not buy it.We also dry the coconut and exchange it in the mill for coconut oil and use it in our traditional cooking esp seafood.Garlic has lot medicinal power.It is rich in antioxidants. It acts as a wonderful seasoning in the food which adds aroma and enhances the taste.
