green chutney | hara chutney | coriander and mint chutney | Indian green chutney | 4 varieties of green chutney | with 20 amazing images.

Green chutney is a flavorful condiment made with mint leaves, coriander leaves, lemon juice for tanginess and green chillies for some spice and ginger. All the ingredients are blend together and the chutney is made. Hara chutney is amazing and elevates the taste and flavour of Indian snacks.

Make the Indian green chutney in advance and store it in the refrigerator. It can be stored for minimum of 15 days.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect Indian green chutney. 1. Add the lemon juice to the hara chutney as this will help maintain the colour. If you don’t add lemon juice, the green chutney will keep on getting darker. 2. Add roughly chopped green chillies to the blender for spice. You can increase or reduce the chillies according to your preference. 3. Blend coriander and mint chutney into a smooth paste. You will have to stir it once or twice in between to get a smooth paste.

It is a perfect pair to Popular Indian Snacks. My favourite snacks which are had as with green chutney are Grilled Sandwich, Sev Puri, Khatta Dhokla, Cauliflower and Oats Tikki and Bajra, Carrot and Onion Uttapa.

The green chutney is a simple and easy recipe that has no unhealthy or calorie-laden ingredients like sugar. This hari chutney also provides antioxidants like vitamin A and Vitamin C. These substances which help reduce inflammation in the body and ward off free radicals which otherwise can lead to chronic diseases.

There are a lot of variations to green chutney. We have given below the recipes for green chutney for chaats, faral green chutney, low calories green chutney and green chutney Mumbai style.
