Remove the stalks of red chilies and break them into 2 parts. Deseed them (optional) and add them to a bowl. Discard the seeds. Please wear gloves if you are not used to handling chilis.
Soak the red chilies in 1 cup of hot water for 30 mins or until they soften. Water should cover the chilis completely.
Drain the red chilies and add to blender along with garlic, salt, and lemon juice.
Blend with ¼ cup water until smooth. The consistency of the chutney should be more towards the thicker side or of medium consistency.
Pour the red chutney into a small jar or bowl. Cover and refrigerate and use to flavor your favorite chaat recipes.
