Green chutney is a delicious sauce, usually served with Indian savory dishes or as a dip with some naan bread or papadum.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh chopped cilantro (25 g)
  • 1 cup fresh chopped mint leaves (12 g)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1-inch piece of ginger root (about 2.5 cm)
  • 1/4 cup water (65 ml)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne flakes (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor or a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Serve immediately with your favorite Indian dish or as a snack with some naan bread, papadum, crudités, etc. I served it with some pakoras.
  3. Keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.

Notes

  • I didn’t peel the ginger root, but it’s up to you.
  • Tahini can be replaced by oil, but I would add only 2 tbsp of water.
  • Classic recipe is made with green chilli, but as I couldn’t find it, I used cayenne flakes. If you don’t like spicy food, omit the cayenne flakes or add less.
