Fresh Red Chutney with Almonds (Lal Chutney)

This is the chutney that is traditionally served with "Hamburger" Kebabs. You can serve it with any meals. Instead of fresh, hot red chilies, a combination of red bell pepper and cayenne pepper is used here.You may use the former, if you wish. It will be much hotter. Also, walnuts may be used instead of the almonds. Both would be traditional and authentic.

This chutney may be kept in the refrigerator ( well covered) for a few days.
