Garlic (called Lahsun in hindi) works as a heart-friendly food as it helps to decrease cholesterol levels thereby protecting our heart form any damage. So garlic is good for you.

    Additional Notes
    Garlic Chutney preserves well in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Keep it in an air tight container or ziplock bag.
  • 4. Garlic chutney is perfect accompaniment for steamed rice. I even use it as a spread in lamb sliders. If a curry recipe calls for garlic, you can use a tablespoon of this chutney in curries. Just add less red pepper powder since chutney already has pepper in it.
