Green Chutney | Indian Mint and Coriander Chutney

Green Chutney | Mint and Coriander Chutney

This is one of the ubiquitous chutneys of India, made with Mint and/or Coriander, and served with so many snacks, used in sandwiches and slathered onto street food. India has a glorious tradition of mishing and mashing things together to make the most inspired chutneys, and other dishes such as Bhartas.

Use it as a spread or a dip. It goes well with Pakora, Samosa, Chole, Potato Chips, Vadapav, Bhel, Dhokla, Chaat and Snacks, and so much more. Make your own – store bought lacks the beautiful freshness of home made. Use it in inspired ways too – in Salad Dressings, drizzled over grilled cheese and toast, and stir into yoghurt for dips and dressings.
