I have already posted a green chutney similar to restaurant style. This is my second version. I usually make this for idli. I use mint leaves or coriander leaves and sometimes with both. It tastes great in all the way..I got this recipe from a restaurant style recipes book..U’ll get a nice green color and i am sure u’ll like this a lot..

  • Grated coconut  - 1/2 cup
  • Green chillies – 3 nos ( add more if u want spicy)
  • Tamarind  - A small piece ( Half seed )
  • Coriander leaves or Mint leaves – 1/2 – 1 cup ( 1 bunch)
  • Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp
  • Cooking oil – 1.5 tsp
  • Salt & water – as needed

To temper:
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilly – 1  no (optional)

METHOD
