Green onion chutney recipe

This zingy, fresh, citrusy green onion chutney is the perfect accompaniment to poppadoms and mint sauce. It also pairs well with homemade scotch eggs and sweet mango chutney. We love this green onion chutney because of how much flavour it packs and how easy it is to make. Green onion chutney can be made with red onion or shallots. The key to making great chutney is to chop all of the ingredients as finely as possible. It can be blended; however, we prefer the texture of crunchy onion.

Most chutneys are full of sugar but not this one. Chutneys can be sweetened naturally by cooking, but this one is healthy, great for digestion, and requires no cooking. Raw onion is detoxifying, and with only four ingredients, this chutney is a great base for layering new flavours. You can add other ingredients depending on what you are serving it with; for example, add chilli to the chutney to add spice to your food. Alternatively, add finely chopped raw garlic, fresh parsley, and olive oil to give a more contrasting flavour to an Italian dish. 


  • Large onion (1)
  • Fresh mint or coriander (2 tsp)
  • Spring onion (2 tsp)
  • Lemon juice (1 tsp)


This chutney is so easy to make, mix everything and serve. If you want to, you can leave the chutney for a few hours in the refrigerator to let the flavours infuse.
