Chaat Chutney (Green & Sweet Chutney)

Chaat Chutney (Green & Sweet Chutney)

My 233rd recipe,”Chaat Chutney (Green & Sweet Chutney)”, the essential chutneys to make a delicious Indian chaat. Today’s post basically comprises of 2 recipes. One to make a Green Chutney and the other to make a Tamarind Date Chutney, a.k.a Sweet Chutney. I had mentioned about my love for Indian Chaat and how easy it is to make one in my last post. Most of the Indian chaat items which are super delicious are always not difficult to make. It is all about having the right ingredients and whenever needed you can quickly assemble your favorite chaat. While there are different components that goes into a chaat, there are 2 ingredients which is used across all kinds of chaat. Those 2 are none other than these Green Chaat Chutney and Sweet Chaat Chutney.

In my opinion, these 2 are the key to bringing out the best flavor for the chaats. For this reason, I do not like buying them readymade from the super market. I love when they are made freshly at home. The process to make them are very simple as well and they can sit in your fridge for a few days. So there is no reason why we should not make them at home. Out of these 2, green chaat chutney is my favorite. It adds a nice freshness and spiciness to the chaats. And also I use the green chutney as a spread while making grilled cheese sandwiches or just as a side for a hot samosa.

And RK loves the sweet chutney. The balance between sweetness and tanginess in this chutney adds the extra zing needed for any chaat. It also helps to cool down your palette while having spicy chaats. With the addition of date it is healthy too 😉 Though the basic ingredients are the same, there are numerous ways to prepare these chaat chutneys. What I have listed below is exactly how I like my chaat chutneys 😉
