Notch up the flavour of your Indian dishes, wraps or sandwiches with this tasty, tangy and spicy chutney in just 5 minutes.
Indian green chutney is a delicious mix of fresh ingredients blended together to create a wonderful depth of flavours.
You could also serve it with Indian snacks such as khaman dhokla, samosas and pakoras, or drizzled over chaat, in wraps and spread in sandwiches.
This recipes makes around a cup of Indian green chutney.
- Select fresh herbs taking care the leaves are not wilting or beginning to yellow.
- I like to include the stems of the fresh herbs as they have great flavour.
- The oil is for emulsification, giving a creamy chutney and helps preserve the freshness.
- Feel free to adjust the amount of green chilli, lemon and salt to your taste.
It really is very easy to make green chutney. Simply blend all the ingredients together – and you’re done! You could blend it till smooth or leave it a little chunky for great texture.
Pro tip: Allow the chutney to sit at room temperature for approximately 20 minutes before serving to allow all the flavours to come together.
Keep the chutney in a closed container in the fridge for 3-4 days, or freeze for up to a month.
Freeze in ice trays then transfer to a freezer bag once frozen.
Note: Frozen chutney will have a milder taste when defrosted.
