Green Chutney

Green Chutney is used along side many different dishes in India.  We think it's delicious with our Aloo Ki Tikki Recipe, which are effectively spiced potato patties fried in oil.  A comforting, moreish dish which makes a cracking starter or snack.   This chutney recipe keeps in the fridge for up to a week or you could freeze in ice cube trays so it's handy for another time.

Green Chutney Ingredients

1 large bunch of fresh coriander, around 60 - 100g
1-2 green chili
2 garlic cloves
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp salt
Juice of 1 lime or 2 tbsp lime juice
Water for loosening
1/2 tsp sugar (leave out if you wish

Green Chutney Recipe

Add the coriander to a blender, stalks and all. Then add the green chili, garlic, cumin powder, salt and sugar (if using) and the lime juice.  Add 1 tbsp of water to start with and then you can add more to adjust the consistency.

Blend to a fine paste.  As above, store in the fridge for up to a week or freeze in ice cube trays to use later. 

This green chutney will make a gorgeous accompaniment to a number of other Indian dishes including:

Aloo Ki Tikki (Spicy Potato Patties)
