Sweet & Sour Chutney

Amchur always available at home and it a very easy, quick recipe. Earlier I posted Amchur chutney with Gur or Jaggery. This time I used brown sugar instead of Gur or Jaggery. Since Gur or jaggery is only available in winters. So, I am using brown sugar. You can use normal white sugar too.
