Mint chutney is a delicious condiment that can be eaten with Indian appetizers such as pakora or paneer, with Indian main dishes such as daal or aloo gobi, or with any grilled meat. You can even spread it on a sandwich! It adds a ton of flavour to anything you make. It's really easy to make and really healthy too.
Wash mint and cilantro. Remove the mint leaves from the hard stems and use only the leaves. Coarsely chop cilantro. Peel and chop onion into large chunks. Remove the stem of the serrano chili. Begin by blending the onion, salt, lemon juice, sugar and chili in a blender or food processor. Then add the mint leaves and cilantro and continue to blend all the ingredients together to form a fine paste. If the chutney has a chunky consistency, add 1-2 tablespoons of water and then continue to blend until the chutney is very smooth.
This chutney can also be added to plain yoghurt with a bit more salt to make a mint chutney dip. Can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
