About this Recipe

By: Savita Tanwar

Chutney is a common sauce eaten with a variety of Indian foods, and used by other Asian cuisines, as well. Green chutney is a coriander-based sauce, flavored with mint and chilis. It goes well with samosas, pakoras, kebabs, tandoori chicken, pretty much any type of snack or fried food.
