Properly wash the coriander and mint leaves, and strain off the excess water.
In a mixer, blend the coriander & mint leaves, with peanuts, cumin seeds, green chilies, salt & water, till it forms a smooth paste. Here, lemon juice is optional, but highly recommended, as it helps preserve the chutney better.
Once done, transfer into an air-tight glass container, and refrigerate if not using immediately. It will preserve better that way.
Use this green chutney for sandwiches, as a dip for snack items, or even as a base to make green marinade for tikkas etc.
Measuring the herbs - I use both the leaves and stems of the coriander leaves, with only the root cut off, and I roughly chop them, before measuring them out. With mint, I only use the leaves, and use as much of them, as I need for the recipe.
Ratio of ingredients - I use more coriander than mint in my recipe. But you can go with 50:50 or more mint than coriander, based on your preference. Same goes with other ingredients, especially like peanuts, you can adjust the quantity a bit, to suit your tastebuds.
Substitutions - I love to flavor my sandwich chutney with peanuts, because I love that nutty flavor. But you can even add garlic or coconut. I skip garlic for this particular chutney, because I like to be able to have sandwiches on fasting days when I don't eat onion or garlic. And I prefer to not add coconut, because I usually make a big batch of this particular chutney, and with coconut it will not preserve that well for a longer period. If you love the flavor of coconut, and are making a small batch, you can always add it in.
