- Garlic: 2 cloves
- Tamarind Juice/Lemon Juice : 1 teaspoon
- Turmeric : ¼ teaspoon
- Cumin Seeds: ½ teaspoon
- Green chillies: 2

- Oil – 1 tablespoon

- In a pan, add the oil, once the oil is hot, add all the above ingredients except the salt and tempering ingredients.
- Saute the ingredients for -10 minutes till the sesame seeds turn light brown.
- You can switch off the hob and let the mixture cool down.
- Now, add the sauteed mixture into a blender and blend till a smooth paste is formed.
- You can add some water(8-10 tablespoon) to get the right consistency for your chutney. For thicker chutney add less water.
- Add the salt and Sesame chutney is ready.
- In a separate small skillet, add the oil and heat it on high flame, once heated add all the tempering ingredients and as soon as the mustard seeds begin the crackle, pour the tempered oil over the prepared chutney.
*Tempering is not necessary and you can avoid it if you dont have the tempering ingredients. Tempering just adds an extra layer of flavour to the chutney.
