“This recipe is from a restaurant in Labrang, Gansu Province, China. Chutney is more of an Indian item but as Tibetans return from Indian and Nepal, they are bringing this influence with them. This chutney makes for a wonderful side dish with deep fried snacks as well as with grilled or roasted lamb and pork.”
