Chatpata dishes always fascinate us, are you agree with me? Of course yes, who don’t like some spicy tangy pickle or chutney along with their regular meal. They definitely increase the taste of a normal meal to double.

Absolutely delicious and yummy side dish you can prepare and keep it for later use also.
