Walnut ( Karat/akhrot  ) chutney/dip is one of the recipe which I got when browsing.I made it a day for dosa and had some dip left over,since I am alone in afternoon for lunch I just mixed it with rice ,to say the truth it tasted awesome with rice rather than in morning.Got it from here and made slight changes.
