Method for the Nutritious Green Chutney

  1. To make nutritious green chutney, take one fresh bunch of mint leaves. You will know the leaves are fresh when they are bright green in color and not yellow. See why mint leaves are good for you
  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 pudina leaves. Keep aside.
  5. Take one fresh bunch of coriander. This is also called dhania. See why coriander is good for you


  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 hari chutney. Keep aside.
  9. We have also added onion in this recipe to make it a little different. We have used 3/4 cup sliced onions, which is 1 large onion.
  10. Put the mint leaves in a mixer jar.
  11. Then add the coriander leaves.
  12. Now add the onions. This will give a slight pungency to this tasty chutney. Did you know onions are good for your health and heart


  13. Now add the lemon juice. This will help maintain the color of the nutritious green chutney. If you don’t add lemon juice, the chutney will keep on getting darker.
  14. Add the sugar to balance the flavor of the lemon in the nutritious green chutney.
  15. Also add roughly chopped green chillies to the blender for spice. You can increase or reduce the chillies according to your preference.
  16. Finally add salt to taste.
  17. Add 1/4 cup water so that it is easily blended.
  18. Blend into a smooth paste. If the jar is too big, you will have to stir it once or twice in between to get a smooth paste.
  19. Remove in a bowl and use nutritious green chutney as required. This will yield around 1 cup of the nutritious green chutney.
  20. Store this nutritious green chutney in the freezer in an airtight container. You can serve this chutney alongside Broccoli and Paneer Tikki or Chana Dal Pancakes.
