Green chutney is a  cilantro and mint based spread or dip which  can be prepared in just few minutes. It is made with fresh cilantro and mint leaves and can be preserved for a month or so in refrigerator. Green chutney can use used as a spread on sandwiches or dip for savory snacks like samosa, pakoda or topping for any chaat dishes like dahi poori, sev poori etc....
