A Few Final Thoughts

These points are also available in the recipe card so that you can print them:

  • Substitutions: Want this recipe more spicer? You can by replacing large chilies with regular chilies which are hotter. I have tried this recipe by replacing chilies with capsicum and it came out very well.
  • Additions: Add a pinch of gluten-free asafoetida (Heeng) to add the flavor. If you like garlic, you can also add some crushed garlic into the spice mix.
  • Reductions: If you are using non-stick cookware, you can reduce the vegetable oil by half.
  • Shelf life: You can empty kutta into a clean container and refrigerate immediately. It keeps well for a week easily.
  • Serving: It tastes best with paranthas, pooris as well as with chapatis. You can serve it with practically all kinds of Indian meals.
  • Instead of cutting chilies, you can use a blender to make a coarse blend or you can use the stone grinder to pound the chilies. If you are pounding chilies using a stone grinder, be careful of any seeds that may decide to fly and land in your eyes.
  • You need to soak fenugreek seeds in water for at least 10 minutes.
  • You can bring down the hot spice level of the chilies by deseeding them after cutting.
