  • 4 Green onions
  • 1 cup Frozen Green Garbanzo
  • 1 Tblsp oil
  • salt and pepper
  • water as needed
  • How its done

    – Cook green garbanzo with a little water and salt in the microwave, ~ 5-7 minutes on high usually cooks it
    – Chop the green onions and chillies; dice the tomatillos
    Рheat oil in a pan and add the green onions. Saut̩ a few minutes till the onion looses it raw flavor
    – add the tomatillos and cook on high flame so they char a bit; add the chillies and cook till the tomatillos are lightly browned. Add the green garbanzo, salt and pepper

    – Chutney is ready! Serve with chips, carrot, upma or idli.

    1. Very interesting combination…where do you find the green garbanzo?

      • Thanks, Aneela. I usually get them frozen in whole foods or the local Indian store. It’s really nutty tasting…a great addition to salads or any dish where you want a little crunch.
