Mint coriander chutney is a simple and flavorful condiment recipe. Chutney is nothing but a spicy and tangy accompaniment recipe widely popular in Indian cuisine.

Green chutney is a versatile recipe and so easy to make too. Each and every region and family has its own way of making this chutney. My mom adds shredded coconut to this and makes it like pudina kothamalli thogayal that can be relished with rice, idli, dosa, uthappam, chapati, adai, and pesaratu.

How to store green chutney: 


Green chutney is usually stored in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator. Lemon juice is added to preserve the natural greenish hue and it also helps to stay fresh for a long time in the fridge.

How long does green chutney last: 


I usually make green chutney every week and store it in the refrigerator. Since this pudina coriander chutney recipe is made without coconut, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days if the climate is cold and stays good for up to 3 days in a tropical climate. It can be kept outside for half day.

Can green chutney be frozen:


Green chutney can be made in large quantities and stored in a container/tiny ziplock pouches and freeze them for a month. Frozen green chutney can be warmed up in a microwave for 30 seconds or so. If you don't own a microwave, simply place the chutney container/ziplock bag in a bowl of hot water for 5 mins and then serve. However, the green chutney tastes best when it is made fresh.

Why is my green chutney tastes bitter:


Always discard the mint leaves stem as it makes the chutney tart and bitter. However, you can include the tender coriander leaves stem as it yields a nice aromatic flavor to the green chutney.

The ideal ratio of mint and cilantro is 1:2. Do not grind the mint leaves for a longer time as it starts to release oil which is the reason for bitterness. Grind the chutney at the lowest setting in your blender and do not blend beyond 2 minutes. Additionally, add a tsp of lemon juice only after transferring the chutney into a glass container. A pinch of sugar also helps to balance the flavor.

How to preserve the green color in green chutney:

Adding a pinch of white sugar helps in preserving the green tint in the mint coriander chutney. Even lemon juice helps too.

Green chutney recipe for sandwich:


Bombay sandwich recipe is an Indian-style wholesome and nutritious bread sandwich. It contains a layer of green chutney/mint coriander chutney and butter. Further, thinly sliced veggies like steamed potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions are loaded in between white bread. This green chutney makes a delicious spread for Bombay sandwich and grilled veggie sandwich as well.

Green chutney recipe without mint:


Mint cilantro chutney can be made without mint, simply blend the cilantro along with coconut meat and other spices, the cilantro chutney is ready in a few minutes.

Green chutney with raw mango:


Add a 2-inch raw green mango along with other ingredients to get a tangy chutney. In that case, reduce the quantity of lemon and omit the amchoor (dry mango) powder in the green chutney.

For a restaurant-style green chutney:


Add a few tbsp of dahi/curd/yogurt to get a creamy restaurant-style green chutney.

Mint coriander chutney with peanuts:


Peanuts are usually added to thicken the chutney. Peanuts are also packed with healthy fats and protein. It provides a unique flavor to the green chutney. Peanuts can also be substituted with fried gram/roasted channa/udaithakadalai for thickening purposes.
