Mint Coriander Chutney

Mint , like many other herbs, has a plethora of health benefits. It is known to be one of the oldest herbs which aids in digestion, helps to cure colds, skin irritations, eliminates toxins from the body.. you get the point – well all this after i was doing some research on this herb. I love making mint chutney and use it as a spread in sandwiches, salad dressings, with yogurt and Indian flat breads (read parathas, rotis πŸ™‚ ), with kebabs and grilled chicken. It takes 10 min to prepare this chutney but the strong and pungent flavor adds a great taste in one’s meal.

Today I made mint chutney and used up a bunch of coriander leaves along with it as well. Again coriander or parsley or Chinese parsley or cilantro (whatever you call it) was a great mix and added lots of flavor (besides some more health benefits)


A bunch of mint leaves

A bunch of coriander

1 small onion sliced

2 cloves of garlic

I green chilli

1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

Salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar or jaggery

1/2 a lemon squeezed for its juice

Dry roast the onions, garlic and cumin seeds on a flat pan until they turn brownish.

Once roasted, blend the mint, coriander, onions, garlic and green chilli until it turns into a smooth paste. Add a little water to maintain consistency. Add sugar and salt as per taste. Squeeze the lemon juice. Mix
