Mint chutney

Mint chutney

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.

Mint Chutney

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
  1. In a blender put ginger, garlic, green chilies, onion and salt. 
  2. 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. 
  3. Blend till it becomes a smooth puree. Taste and add more salt and/or lime juice as per taste. 
  4. Store in a glass jar in the fridge. Stays good for about 10 days.
