Mint Coriander Chutney Recipe, How to make Mint Coriander Chutney


Mint Coriander Chutney Recipe – This is an easy chutney recipe made only with four ingredients – which are easily available in your kitchen, namely fresh mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chillies and ginger.

Optionally, you can add lemon juice as it preserves the green color in the chutney. Best is to add black salt in the chutney. I have learnt this recipe from my mother. On the internet there are many variations of the Mint Coriander Chutney.

This Chutney is usually used as a spread for sandwiches. The chutney can also be had with pakoras, samosas, chaat, chole, potato chips and even as an accompaniment with dal rice.

I always make some mint coriander chutney and keep it in my refrigerator. It keeps good for up to 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.


I also add this chutney in my favorite mumbai chaat snacks like sev puri, dahi sev batata puri, pani puri, bhel puri and ragda patties. whenever i plan to make any of these chaat recipes then i usually make this chutney one day before and my work is easier next day.

Its a versatile chutney and can be used in many chaat recipes.

      thanks. for coriander, lightly crush in your palms the coriander seeds. they should not be roasted ones. place them in soil and cover with a loose layer of soil. water and let them sprout. for mint, buy some mint leaves having tiny roots on the stem. pluck the leaves and add it to your recipe. dig the root part into the soil. you can use 5 to 6 stems for one small pot. lightly water. the leaf shoots will sprout in a few days.

      for cooker cake, add 1.5 to 2 cups salt in the cooker. place a rack inside and place the cake pan on top of the rack. or directly place the pan on top of the salt. cover the cooker tightly without the whistle. on a low flame allow the cake to cook. you can check this recipe for chocolate cake made in pressure cake on the link given below. you can easily skip the flax seeds in the recipe –

    Could u pls tell me y the chutney gives a bitter taste inspite of not using stems not Evn smallest n adding lime juice..
    This happens every time!!

    • says

      Two things. Either the lime has gone bitter. This happens with limes ehich are not fresh. Or the quality of mint leaves. So it can be either of the two reasons.

    Hi Dassana!

    I tried your mint chutney recipe. It is bitter in taste, I think, because of the mint. The bitterness is making it unpalatable. Please let me know, how I can reduce the bitterness, without losing the taste.

    • says

      the bitterness is due to the mint. did you use the stems also? the stems would make it bitter. try adding more lemon juice. it will reduce the bitterness a bit.

    hi dassana! received ur very first mail related to mint.went thru it and liked it .have 2 queries related 2 mint,hope u will try 2 solve them.{1}i want 2 have recipe of sweet chutney made from mint recipe of mint chai.i tried to make mint chai by using 10-12 leaves of mint but it turned out to be bitter in taste what can be the possible reason/s for its bitterness.thanks.

    • says

      thanks rewa. i shall find out more about sweet mint chutney. have never made it before.

      also regarding the mint chai – if the mint leaves are older and not tender they tend to have a slight bitter taste. so if adding these mint leaves to your chai, then add less about 2-3. if adding the small tender mint leaves than you can add 7-8 mint leaves for 2 cups of chai.

      i have many mint plants growing in the balcony. some of them are smaller shrubs yielding small to medium size leaves. they are not bitter. some of them are large shrubs yielding very big leaves. you must have not seen such large mint leaves in the indian market. i have not captured any shot of these mint shrubs in the above post.

      what i have observed is that these big mint leaves, especially the older ones are bitter to taste. i added them once to some dish, and the dish had a strong touch of bitterness to it. so i think it is also the variety of the mint shrub that might affect the bitterness.

      Hi Maya

      Thanks for replying. I was not able to see the archive and labels the day I browsed. May be some technical glitch. Today I can see them. I use the latest version of google chrome.
