garlic chives chutney recipe or hara lahsun chutney recipe – since garlic chives are in season, i made this green garlic chutney to go with the hara bhara kabab.
garlic chives are also called as hara lahsun in hindi. the chives are so handy, you can even add them to your salads or breads and they even make for a quick garnish or a quick chutney.
so without saying, the chutney was sure garlicky and was a perfect accompaniment with the hara bhara kababs. it was also good with the potato pakora & onion pakora i made the next day.
this garlic chives chutney is excellent with starters like kabab or tandoori paneer, mushroom tikka or grilled vegetables. they would go well with samosa or aloo tikki or bread pakora too.
if garlic chives are not available, then make this green chutney with just garlic. in the notes below i have mentioned how much garlic & coriander leaves you would need to use in this scenario.
