Green Chutney with a twist! This mouth-watering chutney is made with scallions and Anaheim peppers. Use it as a spread, dip, or condiment!
I am a huge fan of chutney. Thankfully we Indians use a variety of chutneys in our day-to-day cooking. For me, the spicier the chutney, the better it is. Chutney is in fact a spicy condiment made of vegetables or fruits with lemon, spices, peanuts and/or yogurt and it originated in India. You can use them as dips or spreads. I love the fact that I can be as creative as I want when it comes to making a chutney. I am always on the lookout to make a new kind of chutney. What’s interesting is that chutneys can be pretty colorful based on the primary ingredient. For example, we can make a ‘white chutney’ using coconut as the base, the equally popular ‘green chutney’ using coriander, or a lip-smacking ‘red chutney’ using tomatoes.
I usually prepare chutneys and use them as spreads in burgers, sandwiches and wraps. I even tried adding it to a curry dish Chutney wale Cauliflower. Yum! The other day whilst making a Deconstructed Masoor Dal Cutlet Sandwich, I was looking for some inspiration to make a different kind of green chutney. I had some scallions leftover from an earlier Chinese Scallion Pancakes recipe. I had planned to use them when I made fried rice. However I used them to make this chutney instead. Here is the simple recipe. Chop Anaheim peppers and scallions. Add them to the grinder along with yogurt, ginger, cilantro and salt. Grind to a smooth paste.
Green Chutney using Scallions is ready. This chutney has a cooling effect due to the yogurt and has a dash of hotness due to the peppers. An interesting combo in a chutney.
Eventually I was just licking it off using my fingers.This creamy chutney is so delicious that I have fallen in love with it.
