Tamarind & Green Chutney

Tamarind & Green Chutney are very basic and must have ingredient in Chats, Samosa, Pakoda, Tikki's and so many more..

Green Chutney
  • 1 cup fresh Coriander leaves (chopped)
  • 3-4 green Chilies
  • 1 tsp fresh Ginger paste
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds (optional)
  • Few leaves Mint
  • Few drops Lemon juice
  • Salt  & Sugar as per taste
  • 1/2 cup Onion (chopped)
Combine all the above ingredients in a blender / mixer  and make puree by adding little water.
You can store green chutney for 2-3 day in fridge. If you are adding onion , can last for only 1-2 days.

Tamarind Chutney
  • 2 tsp Tamarind concentrate
  • 2 cup Water
  • Jaggery as per taste
  • 1/4 tsp Hing / Asafetida
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Red chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp Coriander powder
  • Salt as per taste.
      Combine water, tamarind concentrate, jaggery and bring to boil till you see the thick dark brown colored sauce. Now add all the other ingredients and cook for another 10 minutes and let it cool completely.
This you can refrigerate for 1 week or so.
