        Just cannot imagine chaats without the three above mentioned chutneys. While recipes for each vary a little from home to home, chutneys for chaats are probably present in every Indian household freezer. They go well with over dishes besides chaats. Love to have green chutney sandwiches and Garlic chutney and rotla.

          Yes di, when we have this in hand we can use not only for chaats but also it pairs with other dishes. Specially we use green chutney with idli dosai, dhokla and sweet chutney with Adai. Thank you
