Mint-Coriander Chutney – Chutney Week – 7/7

Summers are here. Something that i have always associated with summers is my mother’s mint-coriander chutney.

My mother would make a big box of chutney at the start of the week and by the 4th day, me and my sister would be fighting over the last spoon of that mouth- watering, simply amazing chutney.

Not only is this chutney one of my favorites, it is a great combination of minty freshness, coriander comfort, mango mania and lemony zing making it a real good choice for snacks. I sometimes even add this to my yoghurts and make an instant cucumber-mint raita.

Make this amazing chutney today and savor it with a plate of pipping hot paranthas/pooris or as a sauce to accompany your tomato-cucumber sandwiches – the combinations and possibilities are unlimited !!
