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 :-))

  • 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
