A very versatile condiment that can be used as a spread, marinade or an accompaniment to many Indian appetizers. Made with fresh herbs, it is a no cook dish and is ready in minutes. I always have a small jar of this ready in the refrigerator. If you have mint growing in your garden then you can make a large batch just before winter and freeze it in ice cube tray for easy use during winter.
1 cup packed fresh mint washed
1 cup packed fresh coriander washed
5-6 cloves garlic
1/2 inch fresh ginger
1 medium red onion chopped roughly
6-10 green chilies
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup lime juice
- In a blender put ginger, garlic, green chilies, onion and salt.
- Add lime juice and start the blender. While its on, add the mint and coriander from top, bit by bit, giving it time to puree before adding more.
- Blend till it becomes a smooth puree. Taste and add more salt and/or lime juice as per taste.
- Store in a glass jar in the fridge. Stays good for about 10 days.
