Coriander and Mint Chutney

Try this coriander chutney! It’s amazingly delicious and so so simple. 

I haven’t given exact amounts of coriander and mint for this hugely popular coriander chutney recipe. As I’ve called the recipe coriander chutney, you can know that I prefer more coriander than mint. Experiment if you like and make a chutney that is perfect for you. 

This coriander chutney is a good one to have on hand as it goes well with so many different dishes. From papadums to dosas to Mumbai toasties, I’m sure you find a good use for it.

I like add it to chaats like spinach chaat, aloo chaat, papdi chaat and bhel puri.

Coriander and spice fans will love this!

My easy coriander chutney might be simple to make but it is packed with flavour. 

Garlic, chillies, lime juice, cumin… All of my favourite flavours in one simple chutney. I’m telling you, you’ve got to give this mouthwatering recipe a go. 

Working ahead

You can make this chutney a day or two ahead of serving. The flavours will develop and be even better. That isn’t necessary though. You’re coriander chutney will be out of this world gorgeous made on the same day.

Isn’t this a raita, not a chutney?

Yes. There’s yoghurt in the mix. Some people use even more than I did. So theoretically speaking it is a raita. That said, it is and always has been referred to as a chutney. That’s just how it is.
