This is a really simple and easy chutney recipe which my Mom used to make often when I was growing up. This was the prefect accompaniment for samosas or yummy aloo tikkis (potato pancakes) adding the sour and spicy notes to the fried snacks. I make this chutney often now as its a great condiment to any Indian dinner. For instance, I mix it with rice and dal, or pour it over sliced onions and radishes as a spicy salad dressing that goes perfectly with curries, or simply spread a thin layer of it over sliced bread with butter and add some sandwich toppings.The end result is always satisfying with an already good dish just oomphed up a little by the spicy green devil.
This takes no more than five minutes to make and all you need is a good blender with the other ingredients. There are many variations possible from this basic chutney, you can add garlic , or sugar, or yogurt for different textures and flavours. All of them taste equally delicious. The recipe here is has a bit of heat and if you like less spicy just use 1 chilli as opposed to the 4 I used!
