Green Chutney Dip

Green chutney dip is very easy and it makes the simple green cilantro chutney a special and delicious dip.

To make green cilantro chutney:
Cilantro 1 bunch
green chillies
cumin seeds
peanut or roasted gram/દાડિયા ડાળ
lemon juice
Blend all the ingredients in a blender to form a smooth chutney or dipping sauce.

 Transfer the chutney to a serving bowl.

Mix 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt/ curd/dahi/દહીં  to the chutney.

For the tempering:

In a tempering bowl or small kadai heat 1 tsp. oil. Add 1 tsp. urad dal, 1 tsp. mustard seeds. When they start crackling add 3-4 curry leaves. Fry for 10 seconds. Add this tempering into the chutney and mix well.

 The yogurt make the chutney tasting mild. Add more green chillies to the chutney if you like it to be spicy.

Serve with dhokla, samosa, or chips too.

I normally serve this with Appe. Pan fried rice and lentil dumplings. This is one of our family favorite.  

Hope you enjoy it too!!
