Sweet and tangy green chutney with lemon juice and sugar

This is a mildly sweet and lightly tangy green chutney made from coriander leaves, mint leaves, lemon juice and sugar.

I had seen this chutney recipe in a book and what I liked was the addition of 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 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 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.

You can also serve this tangy sweet chutney with samosa, pakora, tikki or any other Indian snack. You can also apply this chutney on veggie sandwiches and burgers.

  1. Tasty Green chutney is more suitable with samosa

    • right and also tastes good with pakoras and kachoris.

  2. Aapki recipes easy aur well explained hoti hai.thank u for posting them

    • Welcome Ghazala

  3. How much salt do you typically use for this recipe?

    • i would suggest adding between 1/4 tsp to 1/2 tsp black salt. basically there should be a balance between the sugar and salt in this recipe. also black salt is not very salty as compared to iodized salt, so you can also add a bit more.

  4. can i have another recipe???
    this method is simple and awesome,but mint leaf is a little difficult to get in our place.4 stars

    • skip the mint leaves and in its place add more coriander.

  5. Never used Sugar in this Chutney, something new to learn..

    • The sugar is to balance the hotness of green chillies and the tanginess of lemon. Alternatively you could replace with jaggery and tamarind and also fresh coconut to balance.4 stars

      • thanks bijoy for your suggestions. jaggery will also do.
