Leele Chutney is the typical green chutney from Gujrati homes . The word “ Leele “ means green.
The Chutney is made with coriander , green chillies and peanuts . A drizzle of lemon juice and a pinch of sugar is a must . This chutney is served with most of Gujrati snacks . Gujrat is popular for its farsaan , it can be baafelo or Tadelo , which means steamed or fried . The combination to these farsaans are different chutneys . All farsaans have their fixed chutneys . However spicy they might be , they all have a hint of sweetness .
The Leele Chutney is normally served with samosas , bhajiya and as a part of daily meal . The peanuts in the Chutney give it a good body and a super nutty flavour . Sugar , salt and spice are all balanced like any other authentic Gujrati dish .
I had served the Leele Chutney with Gujrati Nashto , where I made Chopdas , which is another form of Thepla served in Gujrati homes .
