The green chutney goes well with dhoklasIndian snacksTikkis and Chillas

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect green chutney for dhokla. 1. Take one fresh bunch of coriander. While buying dhania from the market, ensure the leaves are unwilted and have a deep green colour with no signs of yellowing or browning. 2. Add roughly chopped green chillies. You can increase or decrease the quantity to suit your taste buds. 3. Furthermore, add the lemon juice. If you don’t add lemon juice, the green chutney for Indian snacks will lose its bright green colour and turn darker on oxidation. 4. You must add the sugar. It helps in balancing the sour flavour of Hari chutney from the lemon.

In most cases, chaats are also laced with green chutney. In all, it is very versatile and can be used as an accompaniment

Is Green Chutney healthy?

Yes, green chutney is healthy. Made of  green chillies, coriander, coconut, little sugar and lemon juice.

Let's understand the Ingredients.

What's good.

Coconut : The fresh coconut has saturated fats but most of it is MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) which promote weight loss. The high fibre content of 13.6 gm (45.3% of RDA) along with high lauric acid content of coconut improves cholesterol levels in the body. Improving the action of insulin secretion and lowering the raised blood sugar levels is yet another benefit of coconut for Diabetics. See here for 10 amazing benefits of coconut.  

Green Chilli : Antioxidant vitamin C in green chillies protects the body from effects of harmful free radicals and prevents stress. It is probably the high fiber which helps in controlling blood sugar levels. This it is a welcome addition to a diabetic diet. Suffering from anaemia? Add green chillies to your list of iron rich foods too. For complete details see benefits of green chilli

Coriander (kothmir, dhania) : The antioxidants vitamin Avitamin C and the quercetin present in coriander works towards strengthening our immune system. Coriander is a fairly good source of iron and folate – the 2 nutrient which help in the production and maintenance of RBC in our blood. Good for reducing cholesterol and for diabetics.

What's the problem ?

Sugar  (castor sugar ): Sugar used in the recipe is also called white poison. It is a simple carbohydrate with zero nutritional value. On intake, sugar will cause inflammation of the body which will last for many hours. It will spike your blood sugar level and shut down the fat burning process. This also causes high blood sugar levels in your body. The development of prediabetes comes from uncontrolled eating sugar and refined food products for many years and the classic symptom is if you have excess belly fat. This leads to diabetes and further onwards to heart attack, high blood pressure, strokes, impotence and kidney damage. 

Can diabetics, heart patients and over weight individuals have  Green Chutney?

Yes, they can. Coconut and coriander is heart and diabetic friendly. There is ZERO oil used in this recipe, but very little sugar. You can skip the sugar and adjust the lemon juice to taste.
