sweet and tangy green chutney recipe with step by step photos. there are various ways of making green chutney. i have seen this green chutney recipe in a book and what i liked was sugar in this chutney. i had to try this chutney. i adapted the recipe to our own tastes. i have made this chutney to go with the aloo tikki burger.
this green chutney had the flavors of mint and coriander as well as the tang from lemon juice with a sweet taste due to the sugar. the lemon juice helps to preserve the chutney and this green chutney has a shelf life for 4-5 days if stored in refrigerator.
since the chutney is sweet it makes for a good spread on sandwiches while making for kids. you can reduce the green chili completely or use half of a green chili, if making for kids.
