Green chutney

Posted on June 29, 2009. Filed under: Achaar/chutneys/powders | Tags: , , |

This goes well with all tandoori dishes and most North Indian snacks. It keeps well in the fridge for 4-5 days. You can add yoghurt and a pinch of sugar for a green chutney as you’d find in restaurants, or add desiccated coconut for a Southern flavour.

80g/2¾oz fresh coriander leaves and stalks, washed
20g/¾oz fresh mint leaves, washed
1 garlic clove, peeled and roughly chopped
2.5cm/1in piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
½ small onion, chopped
1-2 green chillies, or to taste, seeds removed, chopped
15 raw pistachio nuts, shells removed, chopped
2 tbsp lemon juice, or to taste
salt, to taste
3 tbsp water

1. Place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
