This green chilli chutney can be made in many ways. In fact many Indian states like Andra, maharastra has its own recipe of chilli chutney. I am sharing the recipe that we make at our home. This chutney is also served with rice so we don’t temper it.
Ingredients For Making Green Chilii Chutney:
- First of all I highly recommend using sesame oil for this chutney. Sesame oil offsets the heat produced by green chilies. Also a generous amount of oil should be used for this chutney.
- You can use any type of green chilli for this chutney. You can use the long thin type if you can withstand the spice level. Here I have used plump smaller ones that are spicy too. You can even use bajji chilli for mild chutney.
- Along with chilies a small mount of onions, channa dal are used to give volume.
- Also I prefer to add a small bit of tamarind again to offset the heat.
Some Variations With Chilli Chutney Recipe:
- Use roasted gram or pottukadalai instead of channa dal. Just add to the mixer jar along with other ingredients, no need to fry it.
- Instead of onions you can use shallots for a milder taste.
- Increase the amount of garlic for more sharp flavor.
