Green chutney sandwich recipe with step by step instructions. This is a famous goan green chutney made from fresh grated coconut, coriander leaves, sugar and green chilies.
There are many variations to this recipe, have followed my mom’s recipe. Have been eating this green chutney since my childhood days. Green chutney sandwich recipe is very nostalgic. My mom used to pack them in our lunch boxes, we used to relish them in our breaks with our school mates 🙂
Best part is you could serve this chutney sandwich cold or warm. It tastes great even with toasted bread. sometimes we also add some sliced cucumber and tomatoes along the chutney. My hubby enjoys it with nachos and potato wafers too 😉 I like to eat them with pakoras and dosas too.
The taste of the green chutney is spicy and sweet both. Spice coming from green chilies and sweet taste coming from fresh grated coconut and sugar. Recipe for green chutney is easy and quick, you could make them is advance and refrigerate. Chutney stays good up-to 3-4 days in the fridge.
If you like chutney spicy then add more green chilies. But if you making for kids then just add 1 green chili. The consistency of this chutney is thick so it easily spreads on the bread slice. I apply some butter to the bread then apply green chutney. As this helps the sandwich not to become soggy but applying butter is optional. If you are gonna eat the sandwich soon then there is no need to apply butter. Just apply the green chutney and you are ready to eat.

thank u… need to try, bt there is no other spices in it? ginger garlic or cumin.. please tell…
Welcome Olivia in goan sandwiches not much spices are used however if you wish you can use cumin seeds. Adding ginger-garlic will change the taste of this chutney as this is sweet and spicy both. May be you can add few more green chilies if you like spicy. Hope this information helps you.
Thanks a lot
Welcome Jose 🙂
