Green chutney is one of the healthiest & is used often in Indian cuisine as a side with snacks, sandwiches and also to make chaats. This chutney aids digestion & enhances the taste, aroma and nutrition of any dish.
I usually make this green chutney when I plan to make chaat, wraps / kathi rolls, sandwiches, Indian style burgers & snacks. I store it in a glass jar, refrigerate and use up in the next 2 days.
You can make this chutney in big batch and you can fridge this for few months. But I always like to make fresh chutney. Because the aroma of this fresh cilantro, mint and ginger is totally different. I always make this green chutney often times because in my family everyone loves this so we can use in side dishes as well.

The unique aroma of the green chutney is absolutely amazing & elevates the taste & flavor of any snack. I love my green chutney freshly made.
