This chunky,mouth watering, finger licking chutney is for those who crave for that hint of sugar in every spicy bite. This is one of my favorite chutneys. It has a really long shelf life and actually never goes stale on you.

small pinch of asafoetida 
1 tsp jaggery shavings

2-3 tsp of sesame oil (cold pressed)
