Green chutney is one of the essential accompaniments with any evening snack. It is spicy, tasty and versatile in its use.

Green chutney is perfect match for sandwich. It goes well with any paratha.  It makes a perfect accompaniment   with snacks such as  samosa, cutlets, kachori etc. It is quintessential for chats as bhelpuri and sevpuri.

Various kinds of green chutney can be prepared. Here are two kinds of green chutney that I often prepare.

Use fresh coriander and mint leaves. Do not use thick stalks into the chutney. Adjust consistency of water, thin for chats, medium consistency for snacks and thick to spread for sandwich.
