Indian Mint Chutney

Yields6 Servings
Prep Time10 mins

An Indian Mint Chutney is my favourite of all the Indian accompaniments. If your mouth is ablaze with a spicy curry or kebab, then this is the perfect way to keep the fire burning.

This chutney is intensely fresh and packs a little punch itself. A little bit goes a long way and it's especially great with meats fresh from the Tandoor oven - on a charred chicken or lamb kebab, or just smeared on a buttery Naan.

There's nothing tricky about preparing it either and it'll add a level of authenticity to your dishes that will impress any dinner guest.

This recipe will achieve a good spice hit but, if you want it more spicy, add more chillies or leave in the seeds. If you want it less spicy - take some out. Magic!

Ingredients

1 cup fresh mint leaves (chopped)
¼ cup fresh coriander (chopped)

With a hand blender or in a food processor, blend all the ingredients into a smooth paste. Adjust the seasonings to your taste. That's it!

Serve as an accompaniment to grilled meats, kebabs or dryish Indian curries. Be sure to have a yoghurt raita to serve alongside too.
