Green chutney

Green chutney is one of the most favourite, spicy and savory Indian classic condiment made by nearly every family in India but every house have their own version of green chutney.

Green Chutney means relish (sauce or dip) from fresh coriander leaves, mint leaves and green chillies are ground to paste along with coconut, onions, ginger, garlic, roasted chana dal, peanuts and flavored with lemon juice, raw mangoes or tamarind pulp.

In India, chutneys are served along with the meal in small amounts, as a condiment to add to the meal. They are usually eaten with any kind of chaat item or with starter like pakoras, samosas, dhokla, or side dish for Tandoori Tikkas, Kababs or as spread for Sandwiches.

There are various ways of making green chutney. Different permutations & combinations are used for making green chutney, process of making chutney is more or less same, but i heard green chutney manually grinded on traditional stone tastes awesome, but i never tried that way, as don't have such type of traditional stone..) 

I always try green chutneys in different ways and my favorite green chutney is made from coriander leaves, onions, green chillies, salt and lemon juice, very light and very tasty.
