Vaquas- I know I have given my Green Chutney recipe to you before in a pervious post, but I’d like to make an independent post of this Green Chutney recipe of mine because It will be easier for you guys to search. I invented this recipe when I was living alone in Switzerland. I get asked the recipe of this chutney every time we have guests, but now I can say proudly say check my food blog for the recipe. 🙂
WHAT IS GREEN CHUTNEY?
Green Chutney is one of the most flavorful condiments that’s made in South Asian cooking. It has cilantro, fresh lemon juice, serrano pepper, and my secret ingredient. I can’t tell you how flavorful yet so easy to make is this chutney, I love the smell of it as well. I usually have this chutney with chaats, tandoori chicken, Instant Pot Shami Kababs sandwiches and etc.
WHAT IS THE SECRET INGREDIENT IN GREEN CHUTNEY?
Black Salt is my secret ingredient. The black salt plays a crucial part in this recipe. I have tried this recipe with various types of salts, but the taste of black salt and a little help from fresh lemon juice its a match made in heaven. I’d only use mint in the chutney during the summer because it will give it a refreshing flavor. Black salt and mint are really good for digestion.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THE PERFECT GREEN CHUTNEY?
The key ingredients are cilantro, fresh lemon juice, black salt, serrano peppers, water and mint. That’s the only ingredients you need to make the perfect green chutney then you just place all in a blender and smooth it to the desire consistency.
This chutney is traditionally goes with spring rolls, pakora (fritters), Samosas, and others South Asian appetizers. I use this chutney for my Golgappa Chaat , Lobia Chaat, Keemay Ki Goliyaan , Sweet Dahi Baray, and lots of other recipes as well. This chutney is great for Iftar during this holy month of Ramadan.
