Directions to make green chutney at home

  1. Take one fresh bunch of coriander. While buying dhania from the market, ensure the leaves are unwilted and have a deep green color with no signs of yellowing or browning.
  2. Separate the leaves and the stems. We are only going to use the leaves and the tender coriander stems.
  3. Rinse the coriander leaves in water to remove any dirt/mud that might be stuck to them.
  4. Roughly chop the leaves for the green chutney. We will need approximately 1.5 cup of chopped coriander leaves for this chutney. Keep aside.
  5. We have also added coconut in this recipe to make it a little different. So, grate around 4 tbsp of fresh coconut and keep aside.
  6. In a mixer jar, add the coriander leaves.
  7. Now add the coconut.
  8. Add roughly chopped green chillies. You can increase or decrease the quantity to suit your taste buds.
  9. Furthermore, add the lemon juice. If you don’t add lemon juice, the chutney will lose its bright green colour and turn darker on oxidation.
  10. Add the sugar. It helps in balancing the sour flavour of Hari chutney from the lemon.
  11. Finally, add salt to taste. To make this a faraal (vrat) friendly chutney substitute salt with rocksalt.
  12. Add approximately half cup of water. If you want a liquidy green chutney then add more water. 
  13. Blend into a smooth paste.
  14. Remove in a bowl and use as required. This will yield around 3/4 cup of chutney.
  15. Store this in the freezer in an airtight container.
