Green chutney for chaat -Learn how to make mint coriander green chutney recipe with coriander, mint, onion, garlic as main ingredients for Indian chats.
I tried this chutney after tasting this in a restaurant, after so many tries, I could recreate the same taste and love this a lot with papad!
Green chutney is very handy for sandwiches as a spread. Be it vegetable grilled sandwich, or just spread over a slice of bread, sandwich with buttered bread slice.
Almost all chaat recipes need green chutney, so this one is perfect to drizzle over and goes very well wit hit.
I use it as dip for pakoras and just serve simply with roasted papad like they serve in Indian restaurants.
You can try this with any one of the green alone, like either with mint or with coriander alone.
Make a no onion no garlic version and just add a small piece of ginger.
Add water according to the consistency you need. If you are going to add for chaats, it can be watery for easily pouring over.
Using as dip? Make it slightly thicker. Check out my samosa recipe.
You can make a batch of green chutney for chaat and use it for a week storing in a clean box for a week in fridge.
You can freeze this for about 3 months. Do not freeze back once thawed.
