Green Chutney for Chaats


Green Chutney is indispensable in Indian cuisine, be it for parathas,snacks, starters or chats. It is made in numerous ways depending on one's taste and preferences. Mint, coriander and green chillis are the mandatory ingredients combined with garlic, sometimes onion or tomato. 
I have already posted another method of making Green Chutney where Mint and Coriander are used in equal quantities and ground with chillis and other spices.
This chutney uses only coriander leaves with one tomato added to bring some tanginess. These type of raw chutneys stores well in fridge for 2 to 3 days after which you can freeze them. Sometimes when I have a large batch of coriander I make this and freeze in one time portions. So any day you make some snacks or chats , I quickly thaw one of them and use it.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cup tightly packed coriander leaves
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 Green Chillis
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 small piece Ginger
  • salt as needed
  • a pinch of sugar
  • 1 tsp Chaat Masala
  • 1 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder

STEPS
  • Blitz together Chillis, tomato , ginger and garlic first.
  • Then add washed fresh coriander leaves , salt, and other spices and grind to a smooth chutney consistency. Add little water if needed when grinding.
  • Thats it !


NOTES
  • Adjust green chillis and garlic as per taste.
  • You can replace tomato with curd too for the tanginess.
  • Serve with any starters or snacks of your choice. For more chutney and snacks recipe refer HERE
