Mint and Coriander Chutney


About this coriander and mint chutney.

I’m usually quite good and identifying flavours but when I tried this coriander and mint chutney was  a bit stumped.

This is a recipe I learned from my friend Hasan at his restaurant Hasan’s in Leeds. Unfortunately, the restaurant is no longer there but with this recipe and a few others on this blog, you can still try some of the most amazing Indian food around.

When Hasan served this coriander and mint chutney to me, he asked me to guess what was in it. I got all the ingredients right except for the mango chutney but it’s that mango chutney that makes is so good and unique.

Can you use any mango chutney to make this recipe?

Yes. Any mango chutney will do but if you have a brand you like or if you make your own mango chutney, you should use that.

What do you serve with coriander and mint chutney?

Coriander and mint chutney is a big favourite at curry houses and other Indian restaurants. 

You will find it served with seekh kebabs and other BBQ dishes, poppadoms, chicken samosas, beef samosas and lots of other popular starters.

Really this is an amazing sweet, sour, savoury and spicy chutney that goes well with just about everything, not just Indian food.

How long can you keep this coriander and mint chutney in the fridge?

you can store it in the fridge for at least a week or even longer. Let your eyes and nose decide. If it smells or looks at all like it is off, throw it away.

As long as you store it in a clean glass jar in the fridge, you should be able to serve it for a good couple of weeks. In fact, if you do, the flavours will actually develop and it will be even better.

What are the key ingredients in this chutney?

Coriander and Mint: Fresh coriander (cilantro) and mint are used to add freshness and natural flavours to the chutney.
Smooth Mango Chutney: This add a sweetness to the chutney.
Green Chillies: These are added to spice it all up. You can add more or less to taste.
Garlic: Personally I prefer more than one clove of garlic. If you like your garlic and a nice garlicky flavour, consider adding more.
Lime juice: This adds a sour flavour to the chutney and should be added to taste.
Salt: Add salt liberally and to taste to give it a savoury flavour.

Ingredients for the chutney.

Get all your ingredients together before starting. Depending on your blender, you might need to add more mango chutney to help it blend.

All of the ingredients in a blender.

Wash and then place all the ingredients in a blender.

Blending the chutney.

Blend until smooth. A little more mango chutney or even a little water can be added to help it blend.

A spoonful of mint and coriander chutney.

Try it and adjust the flavour to taste. You can whisk in more mango chutney to make it sweeter or lemon juice for a tarter flavour. Add more chillies if you like. Season with salt to taste.

Hi Amanda

To be honest I don't think so. It should keep for a few days though.

Thanks, Dan
