Yes today being Friday, am pretty lazy to prepare dinner because I am eagerly waiting for weekend. As well today I had a chance to chat with my wonderful school friend after a long long time. Being in happy mood, I dont feel like cooking :). But who can stop the stomach from scolding. Yes atleast to fill my tummy, I have to eat something. Suddenly this easy chutney came to my mind.
