Coriander and mint chutney

Coriander and mint blend really well in this fresh and cooling chutney. You can use it as a dip for fritters and samosas or even as a spread for sandwiches.

I normally keep a jar in the freezer to bring out when the cravings strike.

It always brings back memories of fun birthday parties with stacks of chutney sandwiches.

Method:

1. Roughly chop the chilli, mint and coriander.

2. Whizz them in a blender with the cumin seeds and 2-3 tablespoons of water for 2-3 minutes or until you have a smooth paste that is silky to touch.

2. Add salt and the lemon juice as per your taste. Add sugar to adjust the acidity level.

3. Serve fresh or preserve in an airtight jar in the freezer.

 

Note:

This keeps well in the freezer for a few weeks.  If you store the jar in the fridge use within 3-4 days.

  4. Shock those leaves in a chilled water bath and then try blending them. The colors u can get from the leaves is mind blowing……

    Yes it is our favourite too. In fact just yesterday my husband made some of this chutney, he also added a bit of coconut in it…a different flavour, but quite good 🙂 Also good with chapati & fresh moong dal combo 🙂
