Mint/Cilantro Sauce/Chutney

Mint/Cilantro Sauce/Chutney

This goes well with all Indian snacks, breads, or may spread it on wraps or sandwiches as condiment. I use it on my Paneer rolls. This can be made with or without mint leaves. (if making it without Mint leaves, consider increasing quantity of Cilantro leaves)


2 bunches of chopped fresh coriander/cilantro leaves remove thick stems
2 cups fresh /mint leaves, stems removed
1 medium onion chopped
1” piece of ginger diced
1 small tomato chopped (optional)
4 cloves of garlic chopped (optional)
3-4 green hot chilies (adjust according to desired heat)
4 tablespoons Fresh Lime juice or bottled concentrated Lime/lemon juice
2 tablespoon plain yogurt
1 tsp salt or to taste
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin (optional)

Remove thick stems from cilantro and all stems from mint twigs. Wash these leaves thoroughly and allow the water to drain.
Grind all the ingredients to a fine paste to desired consistency.

Refrigerate until use.

Serve with snacks or bread.
