Afghan Green Chutney

8 hr + 10 min

Chutney is difficult to define since its use is so versatile. Chutneys can be sweet, spicy, tart or all of the above. Some are fresh, while others are pickled. They're usually served alongside savoury dishes. This recipe is a special one, based on a family recipe.

  1. To a large food processor, add the parsley, cilantro, garlic, walnut, jalapeño, salt, and pepper and blend on high until very finely minced.
  2. Finally, add the vinegar and blend one final time on high until well combined; some small chunks can remain if desired.
  3. Transfer the contents of the food processor to mason jar and do not cover with a lid just yet, as we want to let the chutney 'breathe' overnight. The chutney tends to release trapped air via little bubbles after it’s been blended, and covering with a lid too soon doesn’t allow this air to escape. When covered too soon, the chutney can sometimes bubble out of the jar, making a mess.
  4. The next day, seal the jars with a plastic lid. If using a metal lid, wrap the lid with plastic wrap first so the metal does not rust and leach into the jar. Enjoy!


  • Variations: you can add fresh mint leaves, fresh ginger, ground turmeric, or cumin seeds if desired to vary the flavours.
