Green chutney

Green chutney adds to the taste of all kinds of appetizers and snacks. It can also be used as a sandwich spread too. It’s simple and can be stored for at least a week in the fridge. I made this chutney yesterday as an accompaniment for chicken tikka. Let me share the recipe.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 5minutes (only blending)
Serves: 5-6

You need:
1/2 coriander leaves (with the stem)
1/4 cup mint leaves (pudina)
1/4 tsp roasted cumin
1 small onion
2 green chillies
1 cup curd (yogurt)
a pinch of black salt (kala namak)
salt to taste
juice of ½ a lemon

Wash the mint and coriander leaves thoroughly
Coarsely chop the green chillies and onion
In a mixer, grind all the ingredients except curd (do not add water)
Now add the curd to the mixture and grind (make sure the curd is not sour)

Taste it to adjust the salt and spice

Delicious green chutney is ready. Store in a clean, air tight container, keep refrigerated….

Serve with any kind of kebabs, tikkas, or deep fried snacks…

Yours tastefully!
