This chutney is usually used as a spread for sandwiches. The chutney can also be had with pakora, samosa, bhel puri, chana masala, potato chips and even as an accompaniment with dal rice.

  1. Just tasted the mint and coriander chutney…now THAT is lovely. Thank you.5 stars

  2. Looks delicious! About how many cups of chutney will this make? I’m planning on cooking for 35 people, with your ragda pattice recipe, and trying to figure out how to scale up. Thank you!

    1. this recipe gives about 1/2 to 3/4th cup of chutney. so you can increase the recipe ingredients by 3 to 4 times.
