Punjabi style green chutney recipe with step by step photos. This Green 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. Here apart from herbs like coriander, mint, some veggies are also added – tomatoes, onions and radish. 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 Punjabi green 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 spread on sandwiches and burgers.

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

  3. 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

    • 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.

      • Thanks Dassana.
