Method for the Green Chutney

  1. Take one fresh bunch of mint leaves. The leaves should be bright green in color and not yellow or brown.
  2. Pick the leaves from the stems and discard the stems.
  3. Wash the leaves thoroughly to remove any dirt and dust that might be on them.
  4. Roughly chop the leaves to make it easier for blending. We will need around 2 cups of chopped mint leaves. Keep aside.

  5. Take one fresh bunch of coriander.
  6. Separate the leaves and the stems. We are only going to use the leaves and the soft stems.
  7. Rinse the coriander leaves in water to remove any dirt that might be stuck to them.
  8. Roughly chop the leaves for the green chutney. We need to use 1 cup of chopped coriander leaves. Keep aside.

  9. Put the mint leaves in a mixer jar.
  10. Then add the coriander leaves.
  11. Now add the lemon juice. This will help maintain the color of the chutney. If you don’t add lemon juice, the chutney will keep on getting darker.
  12. Also add roughly chopped green chillies to the blender for spice. You can increase or reduce the chillies according to your preference.
  13. Add the ginger for an earthy taste.
  14. Finally add salt to taste.
  15. Add 1/4 cup water so that it is easily blended.
  16. Blend into a smooth paste. You will have to stir it once or twice in between to get a smooth paste. This will yield around 1 cup of chutney.
  17. Serve it along with steaming hot Palak Pakodas and store the remaining in the freezer in an airtight container for later use.
