How to make Green Chutney for Chaats and Mumbai style Sandwiches ~ Jain style - no onion no garlic version

Green Chutney is one of the most used chutneys (preserve) for chaats and Bombay style sandwiches alike, and I always found myself wanting that perfect chutney while making these at home. 

This chutney is made more interesting because it uses dalia (Pottu kadalai / Hurigadale / Fried gram) and we all liked the nutty taste a lot and keeps for 2 weeks under refrigeration. You may also make this in bulk for work ahead on instant chaats and sandwiches when hunger strikes.

Its also an instant perk-up side dish for kebabs / pakoras / fritters / tikkis or even to pep up day-old chapatis, which can be turned into delectable veg frankies with one smear of this delicious chutney. I have kept the spice factor a little low in the following recipe, but do adjust according to preferences. 

You can use raisins in place of sugar from the original recipe, and that imparts a wonderful texture to the chutney , especially when you encounter mini bites while the chutney hits your tongue :-) See tips at the end of this post for ways to increase its shelf life too !

Prep time : 10 - 15 minutes.Cooking + grinding time : 10 mins. 
Makes : Approx. 100- 150 gm of chutney that keeps for 2 weeks under refrigeration.

  • Green coriander - 1 1/2 cup (packed)

  • Fried gram / pottu kadalai - 2 TBSP
  • Mora boondi / Baarik Sev - 3 TBSP
  • Green chillies - 2
  • Ginger - 1 inch
  • Sugar - 1 tsp

1) use very very little water for grinding
2) Its very necessary for the coriander and mint leaves to be pat dried before frying to prevent the chutney from going bad soon
3) use dry spoon to take out only required quantity and stir well before and after every use.
