This took some work, finding the right combination of flavors to make the prefect Mint and Cilantro Chutney. I tried many times to get it right and finally, a few weeks ago, I did it!
1 cup mint leaves
1 cup cilantro
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lime
1 inch of ginger finely diced
1 inch of fresh turmeric (if you can’t find fresh you could use 1/2 tsp powder)
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 clove of garlic
1 jalapeno with the seeds removed
1/4 – 1/2 cup water
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or a blender, I used my ninja on setting 3, and puree until smooth. It should take a few mins to breakdown all the mint and cilantro leaves to a smooth paste. Transfer to a bowl and use as a chutney for Samosas, Bhaji’s and Naan breads. Delicious!! Makes about 1 cup of Chutney.
You can store in the fridge covered for up to 7 days, unless you are like us and it’s gone by day 2.
