This basic chutney is perfect for using as a dipping sauce with cutlets and samosas or to serve with main course dishes like biryani.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 bunch fresh mint (approximately 100 gms/ 0.22 lbs)
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander (approximately 100 gms/ 0.22 lbs)
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1" piece of ginger
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsps lime juice


  • Cut off roots from the coriander and 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 with each of them.
  • Peel garlic and ginger and remove stalks from green chillies. Wash all these ingredients thoroughly.
  • Grind all the ingredients (including the salt which you can add more of later to suit your taste) into a smooth paste in a food processor.
  • Chill and serve.
