mint chutney recipe

mint chutney recipe with step by step photos – a versatile mint chutney recipe that can be used for sandwiches or can be served with any indian snacks like pakora, samosa, dhokla, khandvi, aloo tikki etc.

it took me some time to realize i do not have a basic mint chutney recipe on the blog. so thought of adding the recipe. like i have mentioned before, this mint chutney goes well with any indian snacks. i also use it a sandwich spread and even serve it as a side dip with sandwiches. i have shared another variation of pudina chutney that goes well with tandoori snacks.

to keep the green color for some minutes, a few drops of lemon juice helps, but still the color will darken after some time. apart from mint, chaat masala also contributes to the taste. so do not skip it.

this mint chutney stays well for 4 to 5 days in the fridge. for a spicy chutney, you can add more green chilies.

if you are looking for more chutney recipes then do check coriander chutney, sandwich chutney and green chutney for chaat recipes.
