Green Chutney

Recipe for Green Chutney

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: NIL
Serves: 8-10


  • Mint leaves - 2 cups
  • Cilantro (Coriander Leaves) - 2 cups
  • Onion - 1/4
  • Lemon juice - 1 or 2 tbsp
  • Green Chilies - 10-12
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - to taste 


  1. Combine all the ingredients and grind to a smooth paste in a blender or mixie. (Do not use any water for grinding or use very little water. The moisture from the onions, cilantro and the lemon juice should be sufficient for grinding.)
  2. Use immediately. Refrigerate or freeze the left overs and use as required. 


  • If you do not like the raw smell of onion in the chutney, just add 1/2 of a green bell pepper (capsicum) instead. 
  • The other option is to use 1/2 of a green apple. Both of these gives a good flavor to the chutney.


  • You can make this chutney in bulk and put it in ice tray. After it is frozen, put the chutney cubes in a ziploc bag in the freezer. This way you can take a cube and use it whenever needed.
