Take a small bunch of coriander leaves and a small bunch of mint leaves. Wash them (you can keep the stems). Add a teaspoonful thick tamarind paste, a teaspoonful yogurt and three or four cloves of garlic, salt according to taste.

If you want sweet chutney, then add sugar according to taste otherwise add fresh green chilis.

Mix them in mixi with a two spoonful water.

You can keep it in refrigeration for two to three days.
Thank you for posting this. Green chutney is my favorite. I honestly think I could drink it.

Same here! I love sliced firm paneer grilled with salt and pepper and a bit of olive oil drizzled with green chutney and a crisp salad of baby lettuce.

I grill the paneer like you would haloumi. Delicious!
I also like dipping plain fresh Naan bread into green chutney

Schug is a spicy Yemenite blend of peppers,spices, oil that is popular in Israel. You can add it to everything. I dip my chicken in it with labne(
Yogurt cheese). Spice it up then cool It off.. Haha
It's so good they sell it in most kosher supermarkets

I never made it but I always ask for extra from the Israeli restaurants around me so it's delicious as they make it there. Never tried making it but I think I will try and make some Harissa this week as that is harder to get fresh here.

I have to say, I do not use steak sauces on good steaks or roasts that are cooked to my preference (that is to say, quite rare). I do like them on burgers and as a dipping thing for fries. And if someone insists on me eating an over-cooked beef thing, well, no flavor so you need the sauce!

I think it is fun that some have mentioned harrissa. I first had this condiment in Slovenia, but it wasn't called that. Whenever we ordered a meat dish, it was accompanied by this sort of roasted pepper paste. When we got home, we could buy it in paste form from jars or even like a toothpaste tube.

Then we moved to the small-town Midwest (USA) and couldn't find it anywhere and I couldn't find a recipe. A Pakistani friend from Chicago actually went around the city and brought us some. Then I found a cookbook with a recipe, and my husband makes it and I freeze it to use in future meals.
