Green Chutney & Tamarind Dates Chutney / Easy Chat Chutney Recipes


           I know everyone can familiar with these chutney's. Chats are incomplete without these flavorful, tangy & lip smacking chutneys, isnt it? In India these two "Green & Sweet Chutney" are very famous with any chat items.Here, I do not get the exact taste that we get it in Indian roadside vendors. Today I am sharing my way of making chutney and very happy that its taste almost close to vendors chutney. Both the recipes are very easy to make and very handy for Soya Broccoli Cutlets, Aloo / Potato Kurkure, Palak Pakoda etc. It gives a nice taste & flavor to your any chat.




Ingredients for Green Chutney :

  • Coriander leaves - 1 & 1/2 cup
  • Mint Leaves - 1 cup
  • Ginger - 1/2 inch pc
  • Lime juice - 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Garlic(optional) - 2-3 small pods
  • Chat masala - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - As required
  • Water - 2-3 tsp
How to Make :
  • Wash and rinse coriander & mint leaves. In a grinder put all the above ingredients with wash coriander & mint leaves. Add very little water and grind it into smooth chutney. The consistency should be not too thin or too thick.



  • Remove the chutney into clean jar/bowl & refrigerate it.


      Ingredients for Dates & Tamarind Chutney :
      • Seedless dates - 1/2 cup
      • Tamarind - 3 tbsp
      • Jaggery - 3 tbsp
      • Roasted cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
      • Red chili powder - 1 tsp
      • Salt - As required
       How to Make : 
      • Remove seeds from dates and tamarind, if you are using with seeds. Pressure cook dates & tamarind with very little water ( 1/2 cup approx) for 2-3 whistles.
      • In a grinder put dates & tamarind and grind into smooth paste. Heat pan on medium flame, add ground paste with red chili powder, roasted cumin powder, jaggery and little salt.


      • Add very little water say 1-2 tsp and let it simmer for 6-7 min till chutney  becomes thick.
      • Turn off the flame and transfer chutney into clean container & refrigerate it.       


      • Serve with any chaat recipes.





        Notes:
        • Adjust spicyness as per your taste.
        • You can also boil dates & tamrind with required waterin a pan. Let it boil for 7-8 minutes and then grind it.
        • Green chutney stays good for a week.
        • Sweet chutney stays fresh for 3-4 weeks.
        • Adding garlic is totally optional. You can also skip.
        • Adding lemon juice will retain green color.
