(Special Chutney for Dhokla)

The Gujarathi snack Khaman Dhokla is popularly served with Green Chutney. This sweet and sour snack goes well with spicy green chutney. There are many variations of Green Chutney that people make. Today I have shared one such variation which pairs up well especially with spongey Dhoklas. It is made with fresh coriander leaves, green chilies, lemon and a few other ingredients. The chutney is a perfect blend of spicy, sour and sweet flavours. It can also be served with fried snacks like samosa, pakoras etc.
