Tragedy has struck. Ive been asked, no - ordered, by my doctor to cease and desist from consuming any spicy or fried food. Looks like its cottage cheese cubes and celery for me from now or thats what he thinks. Heres a defiant recipe.


Dried red chilies 3 Cup (48 tbs)
Whole garlic pods 1 Cup (16 tbs) (peeled)
Diced boiled potatoes 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Olive oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
Salt To Taste



1. Remove the stalks and deseed the chillies. If you want it really hot, don’t remove the seeds. I didn’t.

2. Blend the whole lot in a blender.

This is a pretty versatile dip or chutney. You can use it as:

* A garnish [like topping a dollop of white salad on the side]

* A dip

* A spread [on toast]

* A starter for a quick sauteed chicken. [add a tablespoon to a pan, heat, add shredded chicken, cook for 2 - 3 minutes on high heat, adjust seasoning, serve]
