Sombu Chutney is something very close to my heart because amma makes this often at home. While tempering the sombu itself the whole house smells like heaven. She adds Sombu to almost all the dishes that give a unique taste. Whereas MIL cooking is entirely different, she doesn’t use sombu in cooking. I follow both sometimes and sometimes I use sometimes not. The one dish without any guilt I use is sombu. This chutney thoroughly loves the flavour. You just give it a try and you love it.
