How to make Green Chutney - Sowcarpet Style :-))

I already have a green chutney that I make for Chaats. While posting the Sowcarpet Murukku Sandwich, I also got a recipe from our friend for the unusual but lip smacking chutney.

So, thought of posting this too (for posterity). My elder one isn't fond of cheese n chutney sandwiches, but after this was made, she said for the next two days, her snack break is gonna be just that :-))

Amma and me liked it too. Not too spicy, yet delicious.

Do try it out n let me know how you liked it :-))

Prep time : 10 mins ; no cook ; makes : about 100 gms
Keeps well under refrigeration for upto 15/20 days


  • sorted and cleaned Fresh Coriander - 1 large bunch  (about 1.5 cups, tightly packed)
  • Roasted deskinned Peanuts - 1/2 cup (I used the unsalted variety)
  • Green chilli - 2-3 (or to taste)
  • Garlic - 2 pods (opt. I didnt use)
  • Tamarind paste - 1/2 tsp
  • Chaat Masala - 1/2 TBSP
  • Kala Namak / Black Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Fresh ground pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • Roasted Cumin powder -1/4 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
  • Grated jaggery - 1/2 tsp


  1. Powder the peanuts and keep aside. 
  2. Now blend the other ingredients except lemon juice into a smooth paste adding as little water as possible. Now add the peanuts and blend into a smooth paste
  3. Add lemon juice, adjust spice to taste. 
  4. Store in a airtight glass container and use as required. 


  1. Ok except that we use sugar instead of jaggery this is the most popular chutni in Gujrati households , I normally minus the sugar and make .

  2. This chutney looks so yum with peanuts added. Very new to me.

  3. I can be imagine how yummy this chutney is. My cousin makes something similar without kala namak.

  4. So delicious! Love this green chutney.

  5. What a delicious chutney Kalyani. Will have to try this one out.

  6. I have never added peanuts in green chutney.looks flavorful.
