Mint-coriander chutney is a basic and easy-to-make condiment that is perfect for using as a dipping sauce with cutlets, kebabs, and samosas or to serve with main-course dishes like biryani. Throw together and grind a few simple ingredients–including mint, coriander, garlic and chiles—and in 15 minutes you'll have a tasty condiment to use with many Indian dishes, like crunchy mint chutney veggie sandwiches.


  • 1 bunch mint

  • 1 bunch coriander (cilantro)

  • 5 cloves garlic

  • 1 (1-inch) piece ginger, roughly chopped

  • 2 green chiles

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Cut roots off of coriander, as well as any thick stalks from the mint and discard. You should now have enough coriander and mint to loosely fill 1 1/2 to 2 cups.

  3. Peel garlic and ginger and remove stems from green chiles.

  4. Grind all ingredients into a smooth paste in a food processor. Chill and serve.
