Green Chutney Recipe is a most versatile chutney recipe that can be added to sandwiches and many chaats . It can also be accompanied with many snacks like dhokla,vada pav and fritters.This is a quick chutney recipe ,which can be prepared within 5 minutes .
As this is quite common recipe ,many have their own preferences for spices and heat from green chillies. Here , I have not used Chaat Powder for preparing this chutney ,but many do . The only reason for not using chaat masala in this recipe is , I didn’t wanted to overpower flavour of chaat masala in chaats . As this is the chutney used for preparing many chaats .
Also this the green chutney recipe which I follow for preparing Veg Sandwiches . Chaat Masala flavour in Veg sandwiches is big no for me.As this green chutney is accompanied with dhokla ,vada pav , batata vada and other snacks too ,I feel there is no need for chaat masala for this chutney. If you wish ,you can definitely add chaat powder to this chutney.
This chutney stays good for 2-3 days in refrigerator. If you are planning for a chaats or a snack party then you can prepare it in advance and can refrigerate it.
