Green Garlic Chutney Ingredients

Green Garlic: is the star of the recipe. It is young garlic that has not yet matured, giving a milder flavor than mature garlic bulbs. Both the green garlic stems and white garlic bulbs are used in this recipe. It adds a fresh, slightly spicy kick to the chutney.

Coriander Leaves (Cilantro): adds a freshness to the chutney. The garlic bulb’s pungency is reduced because of the freshness that green coriander leaves add to the chutney.

Green Chilies: add spice to the chutney. You can adjust the quantity based on your liking.

Roasted Gram Dal: acts as a thickening agent. You can use roasted peanuts or grated coconut as a substitute.

Lemon Juice: Freshly squeezed lemon juice balances the taste of the chutney and is used to preserve the chutney and prevent discoloration. Alternatively, you can substitute lemon juice with a small piece of tamarind.

Green Garlic Chutney Recipe

Step 1 – Wash the Green Garlic

Clean and separate the white and green parts of the young green garlic (garlic chives). Wash them with water and then chop the green part of the green garlic.
