Just a little bit of til is enough to elevate the aroma and flavour of any dish, so you can imagine just how tempting this Til Chutney would be. Made with a combination of roasted sesame seeds, garlic and mild spices, this chutney will increase the appeal of any dish it is served with to an irresistible level. This is a favourite accompaniment for chapatis, dashmi rotis, bhakris, etc., in Maharashtra, and is often prepared in the dry form and stored at room temperature for 15 days or so. Even in the wet form, it can be stored for at least two days in the refrigerator, so you need not worry if some of the chutney is leftover.
