Green chutney is a delicious sauce, usually served with Indian savory dishes or as a dip with some naan bread or papadum.
I've never been to India, but I'm in love with Indian food. This green chutney is usually served as an appetizer with other chutneys and some papadum in most Indian restaurants here in Spain. As I made pakoras for the blog, I also prepared it as a dip because is my favorite Indian sauce.
I googled green chutney, took a look at so many recipes and made my own version using easy to get ingredients and things that I like. It's also oil-free, made with just 10 ingredients and ready in less than 5 minutes, so I'm sure I'm going to make it very often.
It tastes amazing, so authentic and really similar to the chutneys I've tried at Indian restaurants. If you don't like spicy food, feel free to omit the cayenne flakes or add less. If you really enjoy spicy food, please add more. Make this recipe your own and enjoy it as much as I did!
