Green Chutney

Philomena Dias

Green Chutney with Cheese spread on Gootlis or Brun ( hard and soft bread in Mumbai) were a favourite for breakfast. It's been a while but just last week we made this chutney and I've had it over the last few days either for breakfast, lunch or as an evening snack :D

1/2 a coconut
1 bunch of coriander including tender shoots
4 garlic pods
1/3" ginger
3 green chillies - deseed
1/2" tamarind
1/2 a small onion
1 tsp jeera (cumin)
1 tsp sugar
salt to taste

Grind together. Check for salt and chillies and add more if required. makes a good sandwich paste.

Memories can stimulate the pallet and a growl from the belly while your recipe brings that reality back to life.

Gootlis from Bombay - Bakery outside Matharpakadi in Mazagon Bombay or Dias Bakery Bandra.
