Lasan ni Chutney (Garlic Chutney)

Only a little tiny bit of this chutney is eaten. It’s not like ketchup that you can drizzle it on, it’s super potent! It can give you a serious case of garlic breath!

Kachumbar (Fresh Onion and Tomato Relish)

Whenever I make Kachumbar, I smile thinking of a friend I had back in high school.
