Lets now see the recipe of these chutneys. 

Green Chutney:

Green Chutney is one of the key ingredient in most of the Indian Chaat dishes and also for sandwiches. I have seen many of the North Indians prepare green chutney in large quantity and refrigerate it and it will be handy for them to just take it out from fridge and add it to the chaat dishes or sandwiches. Green chutney is easy and quick to prepare all we need is mint and coriander leaves.
