Basic Ingredients Used to make this Green Chutney:

Coriander and Mint Leaves: These two are the key ingredients in this recipe. Just make sure to use fresh leaves to get the real taste.

Garlic: I love the flavor of garlic in this recipe and most importantly I prefer adding them to my chutney, knowing a lot of health benefits of raw garlic. But you can skip if you don’t like the pungent flavor of raw garlic.

Ginger: A piece of ginger enhances the taste of the chutney.

Roasted Gram Dal: The addition of 1 tbsp of roasted gram dal and peanuts makes the chutney thick. Which helps your chaat to keep fresh for a little longer. If the roasted gram dal is not available you can add roasted peanuts too. Or you can skip it if you don’t want to add it.

Green Chilli: Prefer using green chili for the spiciness. But in case the green chili is not available use 1 whole red chili or chili powder to taste.

Lemon Juice: Adjust lemon juice to your taste. You can replace lemon with amla or even raw mango if mangoes are in season.

Chaat Masala Powder: Chaat masala is typically used to add flavor to the recipe. If you don’t have them, try adding dry mango powder, dried pomegranate powder, or black salt if you have them.

Roasted Cumin Powder: I have added little roasted cumin powder for an extra flavor, incase of unavailability, you can skip.

Frequently Asked Questions about Green Chutney:

Is green chutney good for health?

Yes absolutely, as it uses greens and does not use sugar and oil. Also, mint & coriander leaves are known to have a vital role in digestion, and it is for this reason that this chutney is served with most fried foods like pakoras.

Can we store Green Chutney?

Try making small portions of this chutney as it tastes the best when made fresh. In case you made a big batch, then freeze it in ice cube trays. The texture and color will change a little when thawed but you can use it to make some curry or some variety rice like that of Hariyali Pulao.
