Rajkot Lili Chutney

Gujjus are known for elaborate thalis consisting of many dishes. Gujju thali is incomplete with colorful chutneys. It is a must have with any meal - coriander, khajur and garlic chutneys being the most common. 

 Lili chutney from Rajkot is one extremely popular in Gujarat. I have memories of our relatives from Rajkot getting potato chips along with this super spicy chutney.

This is easily identifiable from other chutney as it has a bright neon green-yellow color and it is dry. 


 Roasted peanuts – 1 cup 
 Green chilies – 5 to 6 
 Salt – as per taste 
 Haldi – 1 tsp 
 Lime juice – 2 tbsp


Add everything into the mixer and grind well. 

It has to be semi-dry so just add little water. You can add garlic also to it. 

If you don't have the time to roast peanuts, you can use raw as well. 

 Originally, Limbu na Phool (citric acid) is used instead of lime juice. However, since it is not good for health, we prefer using lime juice. 

This is commonly eaten with khakra, thepla and since it is dry it is good to carry while traveling. Can be stored easily for 15 - 20 days.
