Green Chutney for Chaat, Sandwich | How to make Mint Chutney
Mint Coriander Chutney also known as green chutney or Hari Chutney is one of the basic chutneys or condiments. You can serve this chutney as a side accompaniment for chaats, sandwiches, and as spreads.
Servings 1 cup
Ingredients Needed for Mint Chutney
- 1 cup Mint Leaves / Pudina
- 1/2 cup Coriander Leaves
- 3 clove Garlic
- 3 inch Ginger
- 2 tbsp Fried Gram Dal / Chutney Pappu
- 3 no Green Chilli
- 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
- 1 tsp Chaat Masala
- 1/2 tsp Sugar
- Salt to taste
- A Pinch Kala Namak
- A Pinch Asafoetida / Hing
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
Wash and drain the herbs.
Take the chopped leaves in a mixer and add the garlic, ginger, and green chilies.
Pulse for a couple of times. Next add the fried gram, cumin powder, chaat masala, sugar, Kala namak, salt, and hing.
Blend it again and add water as required to get a smooth paste.
When the chutney is smooth, transfer to a bowl, squeeze in lemon juice, mix well.
Serve this for chaats and sandwich spread and as a side for snacks.
I have made this with roasted peanuts and it becomes a thick green chutney that you can use as a spread on sandwiches.
You can increase the proportion of leaves used as well. Since I was serving with chaat that required mint chutney, I added more mint leaves.
