A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent
Green Chutney is something I use very often and is almost always there is my house and quite a lot of meals pics I have on this blog have that too… I have got many mails and comments on people asking me how I make my green chutney…
There are many ways one can go about making a green chutney and me myself making it atleast 3 different ways…. So here I will try and give to main variations
Green Chutney – 1
Method here is very simple, put everything in the grinder and using just enough water to mix grind them to a coarse paste.
The taste of the chutney totally varies along with the ingredient used to provide the tang… my personal favorite is raw mango and the one with anardana comes a second close… and N seems to love the one with curd followed by the one with raw mango. So try out all variations to see what suits your taste buds the best, but do keep in mind that when u use tomatoes or curd the shelf life of the chutney reduces a lot.
Sometime back I discovered another form of green chutney which at first totally amused me and I even refused to make it thinking it will be eeeks horrible because the mint and coriander in this were cooked before making the chutney…. but when one day I was indeed in a experimental mode and made this we were all in for a surprise… it was yummy beyond belief… there is a very different flavour to this one and we all loved it at home. So here it is…

U know, I’ve never managed to find out how to make green chutney… now I have an idea 🙂 Post pics, Mon!!

oh yea! These go well with everything!
Water it down a bit and it becomes a dip which can be eaten with chips! (hee! that rhymed!)
yeah yeah i hear
Hi Monika….came over for your chutney recipe via Uma’s blog! Seems tasty…shall definitely give this a try! :)))
remember the discussion we had when we met..i might have something on those lines for you soon!!
wow iya thanks let me mail u
Been a lurker for a long time now. You have a lovely space and I immensely enjoy reading about the various activities in your life-cooking/baking/personal issues/photographs.
Have a doubt in this recipe-what is anardana? I also found that in one of your earlier food posts, you had written the ingredient’s name in hindi(cannot remember it now)..Pls do add a photo for us to identify the ingredient in case you do not know its English equivalent.
Many thanks and pls keep writing:)
You have not answered my comment alone??Is this the price I get to pay for delurking?
aaaiyo i apologise 😦 actually i thought i will reply and then forgot plus i guess i approved this comment after i replied the rest so anyways enough excuses i know i suck when it comes to replying comments
and the mistake is mine
sorry lavs usually i do write the name in english too will keep that point in mind from next time on…
anardana is dried pomegranate seeds
You should know that i was pulling your leg:)
Thanks for your reply. I love your blog.
Anything with mint is great for me.
How about only coriander and only mind chutney instead of using the 2 together .
Coriander , curry leaves (8 -10) with raw mangoes and onion taste Yumm as well 🙂
i dont like only mint but only corriander is yummy as well
The methodology of Green Chutney 2 is quite surprising, but I must give it a go!
thanks for the recipe…are mint leaves what they call kariya patti??
