mint chutney for tandoori recipes, mint chutney for tandoori snacks

mint chutney or pudina chutney recipe - this is the same mint chutney recipe that is served in restaurants with tandoori snacks like kebabs and tikkas, be it veg or non veg.

this mint chutney recipe has the same taste of the ones served in restaurants. the chutney recipe is ready in 15 minutes and is very easy to make and you don’t need to make special tandoori snacks to make this chutney. just to have the chutney with baked or fried potato wedges is so comforting…. at least it is comforting for me ;-)

you can serve the mint chutney with any snack of your choice. i even remember once having it with samosas and the combo was so good. i served it with paneer tikka.

update: since i make this chutney often, i have updated the final pics on the post. after becoming a vegan, now i make this mint chutney with  cashew yogurt. so vegans you can make this chutney with cashew yogurt.

lets begin step by step pudina chutney or mint chutney recipe:

1: take curd in a bowl and whisk it till its smooth. add cumin powder, chaat masala and mango powder to the curd and mix well.

2: in a blender or wet grinder take freshly rinsed mint leaves (pudina), coriander leaves, green chilies, onion and ginger.

3: grind with a little water to a smooth paste. mix the green chutney paste with the curd.

4: with a spoon start to blend both the green chutney and curd.

continue to mix and blend till the whole mint chutney becomes uniform and in one color. check the mint chutney for salt and seasonings and add more if needed.

serve the mint chutney immediately or serve it cold with any tandoori snack or starter recipes like sindhi aloo tuk, french friesperi peri potato wedges, beetroot tikki, tandoori aloohara bhara kabab and aloo tikki.

How long does this chutney last ?


dassana amit April 14, 2014 2

it won’t last even for a day, as yogurt is added. it should be consumed fresh. you can keep for some hours in the fridge though.

I wanted to do this mint chutney for a long time. After viewing this site it was so very easy for me to make it. The steps was so simple & clearly mentioned and the photo’s helped me to get a better understanding of the make.

Both my husband & kid loved it when I served with chicken tikka. It was so perfect
Thanks for giving such a lovely site of Indian dishes.

good recipe


sneha December 12, 2013 15

hi, just want to know, for how long can we store this chutney? is it possible to make this in large quantity and store for a while?


dassana amit December 12, 2013 16

sneha, i suggest to consume the pudina chutney in 1-2 day time, if kept refrigerated. the reason being curd is added to the mint chutney preparation so it will get spoilt quickly.


Swetha October 18, 2013 17

Mani Patel October 28, 2011 35

I am a Parsi but a vegetarian one and I am a hopeless cook especially since the family usually cooks non-veg food which is good … I believe. Do you think you could give some Parsi veg. food recipes? Am interested in Dhan Dal Patia … Patia to be precise. I have had such terrific veg Patia in restaurants and even weddings but just don’t know how they do it.

So try and give me a veg Patia recipe. Thank you


dassana October 28, 2011 36

i will try to post the vegetarian parsi recipes including dhan dal patia… in fact amongst the parsi recipes, dhansak and the parsi custard are my favorites.


Mani Patel June 11, 2012 37

Hey Thanks ever so much. Looking forward to the Patia. What about Parsi Stew? Am I pushing you a bit too much!!!!


dassana June 15, 2012 38

not at all mani. in fact the patia, i am still wondering which veggie to substitute for fish. have zeroed in two veggies but still to try out the patia at home. for the stew, will have to look out for the veg substitutes.


Debra October 28, 2011 39

I really look forward to your recipes! Everything is so appealing, and I’m discovering some wonderful new spices and traditions. I can’t wait to try this recipe. The peppercorn addition is unexpected and fun. Wonderful site! Thank you.


dassana October 28, 2011 40

thanks debra for the inspiring comment. it touched my heart.
