In some lucky houses, lili chatni appears on the table at every meal. It’s that addictive, like salt and lime. Nearly every community in India has some kind of green chutney made with fresh coriander, mint, green chiles, and lime, but we think ours is best, as do many non-Parsis. I use my mother’s formula, but she likes things sweet rather than sour, so I adjust away from sugar toward acid. Green chutney is one of those things you want to have left over. It keeps for at least a week
