Losoni Chutney pitti , Dried version of garlic chutney

Hello dear readers!  Today I will share an interesting recipe which we prepare  often and store it . This is garlic flavoured chutney powder. We may also prepare it with curry leaves. Whenever there is excess grated coconut I make this chutney powder.  I learn’t this recipe from my Amma. Ganesh Chaturthi has almost come to an end  and my belated wishes to all those who are celebrating. May lord Ganesha bring harmony  and remove all obstacles from the world.
