Chutney also tastes great with a main course meal. You can make this Chutney well in advance and store it for about a week and can also use this chutney to make pani puri water / pani in no time. This chutney goes well with all the chaat specially kachori, dosa, pani puri, dhai puri and the list just goes on.
In my home my when my mom bring the phudina from market she make this chutney with fresh leaves and store it in the refrigerator and use it when ever she want to make any chaat recipe. She normally uses in making pani puri pani.
You can add only green chili to make it spicy as I don’t want my chutney to be so spicy so I have added bell peppers/capsicum. By adding the lemon juice it retains its lush green color. And ginger gives the nice flavor to the chutney.
