Spicy Green Chilli Chutney

This year I have got so much of Green Chillies from my garden. I was wondering what to do with so much of green chillies. One of my friend from Andra suggested this Green Chilli Chutney. Her mom gave this recipe and my husband loved it :).

Time of Preparation : 20 minutes
Yield : Around 2 1/2 cups
Spice level : 5 out of 5 (extra spicy)


  • Green Chillies – 500g
  • Tamarind – big lemon size
  • Salt – to taste

  • Oil – 1/4 cup
  • Sesame oil – to taste (optional)

For Seasoning:

  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
  • Split Urad dal – 1 tsp

Method of Preparation:

  1. Heat oil in pan and fry the green chillies in medium flame.
  2. Take tamarind extract (thick extract of 2 cups) and add to the pan.
  3. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the lid and cook until the water gets evaporated.
  5. Let it cool and add some salt and grind it to a coarse paste.

  • This Chutney is really really hot. I liked it without adding coconut.
  • Without adding coconut we can atleast store it for a week.


  1. so tempted to try.. looks yum

  2. You are so lucky to have fresh green chilies in your own backyard – and what a great chutney to have on hand….

  3. I like it and I am sure going to try it at home, today itself.
    I am going to prepare it, without addition of coconut, since, more spicy & hot a chutney would be, more it would be my favorite.

  4. its looking very spicy and tasty, i am going to try it now.
