Punjabi style green chutney with onion and radish

Jump to Recipe

This tangy and strongly flavored Punjabi style green chutney is made with onion, radish, tomato, mint leaves and coriander leaves.

green chutney

This vegan chutney is a regular chutney which we make as a side dish with our Punjabi meals.

This is again a healthy green chutney and easy to make recipe. Again from my mil’s fab Punjabi recipe collection.

The chutney is given a slightly sour taste by dry pomegranate seeds or Anardana. When we don’t have pomegranate seeds, we add lemon juice or dry mango powder and even raw mangoes in the summers. So you can choose whichever souring agent you have.

This chutney can be had as a dip or can be used as a spread. Best with some onion pakora, samosa, aloo tikki, paneer tikka, veg cutlet, tandoori or grilled veggies or snacks. The chutney can also be used as a spread on sandwiches and burgers.

I first served this chutney with mushroom tikka and the next day served it french fries and then on third day with cabbage vada (cabbage lentil fritters).

How to make Punjabi Green Chutney with onions

1. Rinse the coriander leaves (cilantro leaves) and mint leaves in water. Then chop the mint and coriander leaves and place aside.

6. Also add ½ teaspoon dry pomegranate seeds (anardana), salt as required and 1 chopped green chili. Add 2 inches of radish now, if using. Also add 1 or 2 tablespoon water to the chutney. If you don’t have dry pomegranate seeds then you can substitute with dry mango powder (amchur powder) or lemon juice or raw mango.

  2. Hi Dassana,
    I just made this chutney today…it turned out very yummy! I was wondering that is it possible to freeze this chutney as i had some extra. Thanks

    1. meena, the coriander and mint loses its flavors when freezed. so i won’t suggest it. but since you have it extra then you can refrigerate for one day and have it tomorrow. but the best taste have the chutney fresh.

  3. Adding tomato is new to me….chutney looks yum….love the way you styled it….
