Green Spring Garlic Chutney or Hare Lehsun ki chutney is a perfect complement to chapati, sandwich, or with hot steaming pakoras.

As the winters near the end, Green Spring Garlic is available in plenty. It is commonly used in making seasonal veg preparations like Khengat and chutneys.

The beauty of the recipe lies in grinding this chutney without making use of water.

Traditionally these chutneys were ground with mortar and pestle or grinding stone.

This technique imparts not only an earthy flavour to chutney but retains its fresh green colour naturally, but when I am in a hurry, I take refuge in using the mixer.

Post grinding this chutney may be tempered (tadka) with mustard seeds and asafoetida as per your choice. If you wish to skip the tempering, then add a tbsp of oil to the chutney.

Refrigerate it in an airtight container. It helps in retaining the colour of chutney and enhances its storage life too. It tastes heavenly without ant tempering too.

I personally prefer its chunky and coarse texture (green garlic and coriander), but you can combine little water and grind it to smooth paste. It would add zest to your chutney sandwich or veg cheese grilled sandwich.
