Homemade Fresh Chili Chutney (Indian Style Sauce)

Another dish I made tonight was a homemade chili chutney (chutney means sauce in Hindi). This sauce is an authentic blend of different spices, cilantro, raw green mango, green chilies, and an unexpected ingredient: fresh mint! This sauce is perfect for dipping or spreading – we top our salads, sandwiches, and vegetable dishes with it daily. It’s also really delicious with fried treats like samosas, onion rings, potato chips, french fries, etc. I made this recipe about 3 cups worth of the sauce so you can easily refrigerate the remaining amount and it will remain fresh for about two weeks or freeze it and it will last for over two months! The sauce is just the right about of spice and has a fresh hint of sweetness and mint, which makes it the perfect sauce for any dish or snack! I hope you enjoy this authentic Indian chili sauce. Spread and dip away!! 


The Recipe

Yields 3 cups

1 cup fresh cilantro leaves

1/2 cup raw green mango

1 tsp salt

1/2 lemon squeezed or 3 tbsp lemon juice

2 – 3 green chilies

1 tbsp cumin seeds

5 – 7 fresh mint leaves



1. Simply blend all of the ingredients together until it has the consistency of a sauce (basically like salsa or tomato sauce). It will be bright green as you can see in the picture. I would taste it after it is blended to see if you want to add more chilies or not depending on your spiciness tolerance and interest!
