Make this sweet and refreshing green chutney in just 15 minutes. The flavor is just on the spot, and the secret to freshness is revealed!
Green chutney is an Indian condiment made with either mint and cilantro or both. Coconut, yogurt, and nuts are often added to thicken the chutney.
So the easy peasy cilantro and mint chutney begins with the blending of all the humble ingredients.
To begin, add a small amount of yogurt to the blender along with garlic, chili, cumin, lemon juice, sugar, coconut, and salt. Blend until smooth.
Then, add the mint gradually and blitz the blender until mint is incorporated.
Next, add the fresh cilantro leaves gradually and blend for a few minutes until smooth.
Adding leaves gradually will keep moving everything smoothly. You will get a smooth and vibrant green thick concoction.
Mix this green concoction in yogurt (low-fat or full-fat yogurt both work fine.)
Continue cooking the gravy for 2-3 minutes until you notice oil separating on the sides of the pan.
Store it in an air-tight container and refrigerate for 7 days. Or freeze it for 1 to 2 months.
