Curry Leave Chutney

Due to the frequent change in the weather I'm not my self these days. Normally I always write up mu grocery list before going shopping on weekends. These day instead of having a grocery list I'm relying on my memory to purchase everything which I thought was over. This time I end up buy a big pack of the curry leaves and find few more packets of curry leaves laying in my pantry- I just knew it I wouldn’t be using all of it in cooking. My hubby said that my memory is lacking and should do something about it. I was really tensed up "What am I going to do with these extra packets of curry leaves".That's it chutney..
