This is an off beat chutney made using Lady's Finger. I had seen it on a cookery show & I was skeptical to try this out at first. But as the lady who had presented this dish had confidently assured , I gave it a try & it was well received. This chutney goes well with hot rice & as well as rotis.

Red chillies - 6 no.s
Coconut grated - 3 tbsps
Mustard - 1/4 tsp
