5 from 1 vote

Chives Chutney or chives salad is a traditional recipe of the Nagas. It is from the Naga cuisine. A very famous and popular chutney commonly found in every Naga household. Chutney are a must in every Naga meal. We have variety of chutney from veg to fish to smoked meats. And this one is one amongst the favourite. Chives Chutney is prepared with roasted green chillies and roasted tomato. Traditionally the green chillies and tomatoes are roasted in fire side in hot ashes and heated charcoal. But since I don't have a fire side currently where I am residing, I have roasted the green chillies and tomatoes in a flat tawa over gas top.
