Green Chutney ~ For Chaat

Green Chutney is a very important chutney in Chaat. It is a strong flavored chutney and stays good for many days in the refrigerator as it doesn't have any coconut in it. I adapted the recipe from Vah Chef. He is one of the person who has inspired me to try new dishes. I love his recipes. His recipe for green chutney is really simple and flavorful and have been making it for a long time. Do try it and use it for chaat, or along with dhokla or to spice up your sandwich.

  • Cilantro (Coriander leaves) - 1 cup (packed)
  • Mint (Pudina) leaves - 1/3 cup (packed)
  • Green chilli - 3 (vary accordingly)
  • Lime juice- 1 Tbsp (or to taste)
  • Sugar - 1/2 tsp (or taste)
  • Salt- To taste


Discard the mint stem and wash it. Wash the cilantro along with the stem. 

Now put all the ingredients mentioned above in a blender.

Add little water and grind it to get a paste (not very smooth). At this stage taste it and add sugar or salt or lime juice, if needed. 

Green Chutney is ready!!

Transfer into an air tight container and store it in a refrigerator. Use it for chaat, as a side dish to dhokla or as a sandwich spread.

Note: To store the chutney for months, put it in an ice cube tray. Once set, remove the cubes and store them in a ziploc.
