Green Chutney | Indian Dip | Cilantro Chutney


This is the Indian dip that is used as accompaniment for so many dishes like Aalu Tikki, Muthiya, Haandvo, Sandwiches, Paneer Tikka, Dhokla, Khaman.....

It can add a spicy, herby touch to your breads and sandwiches and the best part is that it's the easiest thing you'll ever make!! It is more like Indian cousin of the Pesto!!

And it just livens up any dull food...

So here is the recipe, go ahead and make yours...

Note:

1) I recently had a different variation of the Chutney at Hubby's aunt's place, where she didn't add any water to the chutney and let it remain a little coarse (and not the usual smooth paste) and that too tasted yum with the main course...

2) My mom doesn't add onions to the chutney, instead she puts Roasted split chana (Daaliya), that too tastes good.
