Benefits of Using Garlic Chutney Powder in Your Diet:

Eating garlic can have wonderful health benefits. Consuming it in raw form tends to result in bad breath. However, if you combine it with spices, the "bad breath" effect should be less noticeable. In garlic chutney powder, we use raw garlic that's been warmed. As garlic is a natural preservative, you can store garlic chutney powder up to a month and a half at room temperature. The other ingredients used in this recipe are either fried ones, like the split black gram or Bengal gram dal, peanuts, etc, or dried ones, like copra and tamarind. Hence, shelf life will be longer.

Eating this powder daily one or two teaspoons has benefits for your health. It has the potential to help:

  • lowering bad cholesterol,
  • improve blood flow in the body (cardiovascular benefits),
  • boost immunity,
  • protect against cancer,
  • and more.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: 1/4 Kg Chutney powder


  • 1/3 cup garlic, cloves
  • 1/3 cup bengal gram dal
  • 1/6 cup urad dal (split black gram)
  • 1/4 cup copra (dry coconut), sliced
  • 1/6 cup peanut
  • 8 dry red chili, Byadigi or any other less spicy variety
  • 20 curry leaves, or 3 strands
  • 1 tsp or as per taste salt
  • 1/4 tsp or as per taste sugar
  • 1/2 small lemon size tamarind
  • 1 1/2 tsp oil

Step-By-Step Images and Instructions

  1. Keep all ingredients handy. Heat 1/2 tsp oil in a pan. Roast Bengal gram dal for 1/2 minute. Now add split black gram and peanuts. Fry for 2 minutes further on a low fire. By this time, the content turns golden brown. Remove on a large plate.
  2. Add remaining oil. Throw broken red chili, tamarind, copra, and curry leaves. Fry till they are crisp. Add garlic cloves. Give a quick stir, put off the fire. Alternatively, you can make warm the garlic separately. Let the contents be in the same pan. Keep aside for cooling.
  3. Take all the contents in a mixer/grinder and grind to get a coarse powder. If you have warmed the garlic separately, add it in the last round of grinding. Add sugar and salt. Mix well. You can adjust the taste by adding more salt.
  4. Let it cool. Store it in a glass container with lid. It will remain fresh up to 1 1/2 months in room temperature. Use it daily with your meals as a side dish. You can use it in sandwiches also.

Note: Adding warm garlic in the last round of grinding gives it that powdery texture, which is good. Otherwise, there is a chance that it may turn out to be paste-like. In both cases, you can store and use.
