      Yes, you can get them online or better at an Indian store in your area, Doris. They should most probably carry them. Thank you.

      The sauce sounds delicious and the ingredients are not an easy access for me. However, I would like to try it someday.

      Rajan, this recipe caught my eye because I loved the green tomato chutney that my mom used to make. It was a very simple recipe without any ingredients that could be grown or bought locally, like vinegar. I agree with Miebakagh that some of these ingredients in your recipe may be difficult to find. I guess they could be ordered online, perhaps.

      Rajah, I am regular on an onion-tomatoe chutney similiar to your product. But I can not at the moment buy your babe because of rare exortic ingredients. However, Rajah, I am in the process of colecting certain organic dry herbs, spices, seeds and nuts, and dried roots. This will help me later. Thanks and enjoy the day.
