Chutney Identification: I tried some chutney at an Indian restaurant and it was one of the worst things I've ever put in my mouth. What was it?

Forgive me if this post maligns your cuisine, but I'd like to identify this chutney, partly so that I'm sure never to put it in my mouth again.
I have no problem with most Indian chutneys, but this stuff was a whole different world. It looked like chopped mixed vegetables, not spicy, but pungent with a peculiar ammonia/chlorine taste that was very un-food-like.
What was this stuff? Or maybe it was something that had just gone bad?
