Green Chutney For Chaat | Mint and Cilantro Chutney

This Green Chutney for chaat is one of the versatile chutney recipes. This chutney can be used to spice up and flavor your chaat and this can be used as a sandwich spread, for salads and what not? I love to have this chutney in my fridge always.

This is a super simple, no stove recipe. Add all ingredients and grind them together and you are done. No tempering is required even. Also there is no set measurement for this recipe. Each and every household has their own green chutney recipe and here is my version. I usually add more cilantro than mint for this chutney.  But equal measures can be used too. I posted the sweet chutney and green chutney for chaat with curry leaves, (Yes I did experiment it with curry leaves and tried it in my Dahi Bonda)
