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.
