We love chutney. Of course, we have to! We’re Indians. It’s one of the must-have vegetarian food items that we grew up with. And there are so many forms of chutney, red, green, yellow, white, brown! And chutneys made of tomato, coriander, garlic, coconut, dates, and so much more.

One of the staple vegetarian chutneys in our home, like every other home is the green chutney or hare dhaniya ki chutney. And for this green chutney too, mom has a number of different twists. One special version one is her pista chutney.

What ingredients does mom add to her Green pista chutney?

Mom uses most regular hari chutney ingredients for her special green pista chutney, but also adds pistachio powder. Here’s her green pista chutney list!

1 medium pod garlic
10 green chillies
2-inch ginger
300 gms coriander
optional – 10 gm curry leaves
optional – pistachio nuts – 100 gms
juice of 3 sourlimes
3 tbsp sugar
1.5 tbsp salt

If you don’t have limes available, use about 4 to 5 tablespoon of vinegar in its place.
