Coriander, chili and apple chutney

Green chutney is one of the most popular freshley made chutneys in India.  It is usually made with fresh coriander and green chilies.  Ginger, garlic and something sour like mango or lemon is also added to the mixture and blended to form a dip often referred to as the green chutney (lili chutney).  Some chefs add peanuts or even left over gathias to give a unique taste to the chutney.This green chutney is one of the ingredients always added to a lot of Indian street foods such as any chaats like  sev puri, alu chaat etc.  My recipe for a similar chutney using mangoes is here.  This one has been made using apples.


  • 2 small sour apples (Bramleys or Granny Smiths would work fine)
  • 8-10 hot Kenyan chillies
  • 7-8 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch stick ginger
  • 2 cups fresh coriander
  • 2 tbls lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbls olive oil


  1. Wash and roughly chop the coriander, chilies and apples. Peel the ginger and garlic.

2. Transfer the coriander, chilies  apples,  ginger and garlic to the blender. Add the salt and lemon juice and half a cup of water.  Blend all this until smooth


3.  Once smooth, add the Olive oil and bottle the chutney to use when required. The chutney should be fine for 7-10 days if kept in the fridge.
