Green chutney recipe, how to make green chutney for chaat
Usually I make chaat chutneys, meetha chutney/dates tamarind chutney and green chutney, in batches once in four months and would freeze it. I will use whenever I need it. This is a very simple recipe to make.
There are many versions of green chutney and this one is far simple and easy than the other ones.The shelf life is also not bad. It stays good for 3 to 4 days, if refrigerated. I will post the other versions soon.
Lemon juice preserves the green color of the chutney, however adding it is optional. I am planning to post some chaat recipes in the coming weeks. Lets see. If I plan something, it never happens. Sanvi got cold from school and gave it to me, so right now I have sore throat and running nose. So definitely no mood to eat chaats. At this moment, I would want to have some tasty and soup that soothes my throat. Ok, now off to the recipe…
