  • 2 small bunches cilantro, 60-65 grams each, hard stems removed
  • 1 green chili, or to taste
  • 1/2 inch ginger, 7 grams
  • 1/4 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon chaat masala, optional
  • pinch black pepper
  • salt, to taste, around 1/2 teaspoon
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup yogurt


  1. To a blender add cilantro leaves. Make sure to remove the hard stems from the leaves. Softer stems are okay to use, but mostly try to use only the leaves. 

  2. Add green chili ginger, cumin powder, chaat masala, black pepper and salt. Also add in lemon juice and sugar.

  3. Add yogurt to the blender. Blend it all together to a smooth consistency.

  4. Keep the chutney refrigerated.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to add more yogurt as per your taste. More yogurt=less spicy chutney.


Add more green chilies for a spicier chutney.
