My Tip:

1. Wash all herbs in cold water before use. And make sure to discard the stalks. 2. This chutney is very versatile and it goes well with everything from samosas to grilled meat. 3. Recipe makes around 1 cup chutney. 4. Refrigerated Mint chutney will stay good for one week. And if frozen would stay long. Just thaw and use the chutney. 5.
