Most of the times, I prepare the phalahari chutney with coriander leaves. Occasionally I also add mint leaves. Green chilies are added to spice up or give a bit of heat in the chutney. However you can easily skip them or reduce their quantity.

This phalahari chutney is easy to make and an ideal accompaniment with fasting snacks like Sabudana pakora, Sabudana vadaFarali batata vada, Farali patticeSukhi arbi or any other fried fasting snack of your choice.
