Pudina Chutney/Mint Chutney - a fridge essential if you snack often...

It's a good idea to have a jar of pudina chutney in your fridge. It's very versatile and you can dish up some really nice 'n' tangy snacks with it in no time...

  • 1 large bunch mint leaves
  • 1/2 bunch fresh coriander/cilantro
  • a thumb sized piece of ginger
  • 3 green/red fresh chillies (it's really up to you to either make it really hot or go easy on the spice)
  • salt

Simply grind all of the above into a smooth paste, with very little water. Store this in an airtight container in your fridge.

  • you can use it in sandwiches (see the following two recipes)
  • you can use it as a dip for bhajias/pakoras (deep fried fritters)
  • you can use it to spice up a salad
  • it is used in most chat recipes
  • and you can find a million other uses for it, just think, be creative and add some zest to your snacks!
