Healthy Green Chutney ( Low Calorie Healthy Cooking) recipe with step by step photos
To make healthy green chutney, take one fresh bunch of mint leaves. The leaves should be bright green in color. See why mint leaves are good for you.
Separate the leaves from the stems and discard the stems.
Thoroughly wash the leaves under running water in a colander.
Roughly chop the leaves to make it easier for blending. We will need around 2 cups of chopped mint leaves. Keep aside.
We are also going to use coriander in this Healthy Green Chutney. Take one fresh bunch of coriander. You can refer to the article Benefits of dhania to know more.
Separate the leaves and the stems. We are only going to use the leaves and the soft stems.
Rinse the coriander leaves in water to remove any dirt that might be stuck to them.
Roughly chop the leaves for the green chutney. We need approximately 3/4 cup. Keep aside.
We have also added onion here. We have used 1/2 cup sliced onions, which we get by slicing 1 medium sized onion.
To make the low calorie green chutney, put the mint leaves in a mixer jar.
Then add the coriander leaves.
Now add the onions. Did you know onions are good for your health and heart.
Now add the lemon juice. This will help maintain the color of the chutney. If you don’t add lemon juice, the chutney will keep on getting darker.
Add the sugar to balance the flavor of the lemon. Since this is a healthy recipe, we have only used 1 tsp of sugar.
Also add roughly chopped green chillies. You can increase or decrease the chillies according to your preference.
Finally add salt to taste.
Add 1/4 cup water so that it is easily blended.
Blend into a smooth paste. If the jar is too big, you will have to stir it once or twice in between to get a smooth paste.
Remove in a bowl and use as required.
Enjoy the healthy green chutney with matarsutir kachori, pyazi, mixed dal chillas.
