Mint Sambol

Mint Sambol is a Sri Lankan recipe akin to Pachadis or Thogayals of South India. It takes mint leaves, onion, garlic and chilli and grinds them with sultanas and coconut for sweetness, and lime juice for tang. It is a great accompaniment to rice or any Indian or Sri Lankan spicy dish.

I have blended this to a smooth paste, but you can also grind it to a more chunky mixture. That is also very nice.

Similar recipes include Spinach Thogayal, Carrot Sambol, and Andhra Spinach Pachadi.

Green Chutney | Indian 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.
