If you have grown up in an Indian home, you know that a Green Chutney Dip is kind of a staple. Of-course there are many many ways green chutney is made in Indian kitchens, with vastly different ingredients. I myself make several different variations, depending upon what I’m going to use it as or for.
The Coriander Mint Chutney Recipe I am sharing here today is basically my go-to version for using as a green chutney dip for chicken tandoori, tikkas, kababs, samosas, and even grilled veggies & cheeses.
What I love about this, or any green chutney really, is how simple and easy it is to make. It literally takes only 5 – 10 minutes, with ingredients that are easily available, and ones that are probably already stocked in our kitchens. However when used as an accompaniment, a green chutney can immediately elevate any dish you choose to pair it with.
I personally love this Coriander Mint Yogurt Chutney with Tandoori Chicken, but it also goes very well with many different kinds of meats, grilled veggies, cheeses, and even paneer tikkas, and kebabs. Moreover, you can use this green chutney for samosa and other kinds of chaats too.
Making Green Yogurt Chutney Dip
- Set aside all the ingredients to make green yogurt chutney.
- Wash & dry the greens, and then chop the coriander leaves and pluck out the mint leaves, and measure them out.
- In a mixie, blend the greens along with yogurt, ginger garlic paste, green chillies, cumin and salt till it forms a smooth creamy paste.
- The coriander mint yogurt chutney is ready to serve.
How Long Can You Store Green Chutney?
Once you make it, you can store it in the fridge and use it for 3-4 days. Though I’d recommend you store it in an airtight, glass container to ensure it preserves well.
