Dahi Chutney

How to make Dahiwali Daniya Pudina Chutney | Curd Mint Chutney | Spicy Green Chutney with Curd | Dahi Ki Chutney | Hyderabadi Dahi Ki Chutney

Hello Friend's

Today's post is again pudina special recipe which is highly recommended for this summer season.

Dahi chutney aka curd chutney aka Hyderabadi dahi mint chutney is popular in south India. It is an excellent accompaniment for the popular Hyderabadi Biryani. It also goes well with tandoori dishes, snacks and appetizers.

Dahi chutney is made from hung curd aka strained yogurt, mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chillies and salt to taste.. Please take good care when adding salt in this chutney preparation as required in less quantity compared to other chutney preparation.

Dahi chutney is best suited for tandoori dishes and Biryani's, but can also be used for spread on sandwiches as a healthy alternative for mayonnaise based spreads.. You can add 1tbsp in curd and chilled water and make an instant pudina chaas, even goes well with dahi batata puri and dahi sev puri.. 

I'm also adding coriander leaves along with the mint leaves as they complement each other well and enhance the taste..
