Mint & Coriander Chutney

Green & Mean
A fiery green chutney, made from fresh mint, coriander, garlic and green chillies.
80gms fresh coriander (Washed) roughly chopped
40gms fresh Mint (Washed) roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic crushed
2 green chillies roughly chopped
1tsp salt
2tsp sugar
1tsp cumin seeds
2tbsp fresh lemon juice
200ml water

(You will require a food blender for this recipe)


First place the garlic, green chillies and cumin seeds in the food blender.

Add the fresh mint and coriander in next.

Pour in the water, close the lid and blend the ingredients together with short bursts of power or use the pulse switch that many new blenders have.

Open the lid, stir with a spoon and repeat the process. You want all the mint and coriander leaves broken down and the chutney to be freely moving while being blended.

Now add in the salt, sugar and lemon juice and give a few more spins, before removing to a serving bowl.

Cover with cling film, leave to chill for 30 minutes before using.
