|Hari Chutney,quick and easy to make is an indispensable component of chaats.|
Fresh,tart and tangy!While a pudina/dhania chutney is made in all Indian households,it is difficult to replicate the taste and texture of the one chaat wallahs use.The secret ingredient is sabut amchoor,not powder,but whole.It makes the chutney silky and gives it a distinctive sour taste.
Preparation Time : 2 minutes
1 cup green coriander(cilantro) along with stalks - roughly chopped
1/2 cup mint leaves
2 green chilies
2 teaspoon dry raw mango(sabut amchoor)
1" piece ginger - roughly chopped
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon black salt
Salt to taste
Put all the ingredients in a blender and grind them to a smooth,green chutney,using enough water to get a sauce-like consistency.Use as required.
|Indians make several chutneys,or sauces.The one served as accompaniment to meals in Indian restaurants,usually contains yogurt,and should not be confused with this recipe.|
