Spicy Green Chutney


Who doesn’t love spicy green chutney? Because basically it’s an Indian version of green pesto. I lurve green chutney – especially in a green chutney, cheese and cucumber sandwich. My absolute fav. Or why not try spicy green chutney on toast with a sunny side up egg and parsley and cilantro (coriander) as garnish. Another yummy breakfast dish of mine (don’t worry I will be my posting green chutney dishes soon). I spent a long time refining and making this chutney my own, so after a day’s cooking to find the right balance, blending bunches of cilantro and finding cilantro in my hair, we are ready to rock and roll!

Ingredients

  • Green chilies 1-2
  • A bunch of cilantro (coriander)
  • A bunch of parsley
  • Crushed Garlic – 1 teaspoon (continue to season as you taste you may want to add more)
  • Crushed Ginger- 2 teaspoons (continue to season as you taste you may want to add more)
  • Left over yellow Indian Gatiya (this is an Indian crunchy snack, if you don’t have this you can substitute with wonton strips or garlic croutons  or ground peanuts- just helps bring flavor and make the paste thicker)
  • A handful of cashew nuts
  • Green pepper – I added half
  • Pinch of salt and sugar
  • Squeeze of lemon juice

Instructions to make green chutney: 

  1. Wash and finely chop your ingredients so its easy to blend.
  2. Put all of your finely cut ingredients into a food blender. I just got a hand held stick blender for Christmas and its awesome!! Game changer!  Similar blenders linked here and here and here!!
  3. As you continue to blend, the ingredients should mesh and start to become a thick green paste.
  4. Continue to taste to add lemon, sugar, salt, garlic and ginger (if needed) along the way! And blend a little more.
  5. And hey presto, you have just made spicy green chutney.
  6. Serve with chips or as a side condiment to any type of food.  Enjoy!

Hi there, my name is Deepa Makwana and if you hadn’t guessed already, I LOVE all things food, travel and lifestyle. Since moving from London to New York, I have been wanting to write about my recipes and travel however I was a little afraid to share!

If I can help in any way – I have achieved my goal! Come on in and have a peak! DeepsMak x
