Makes about 3/4 cup 

  • 2 cups packed fresh mint leaves, washed
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, washed
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice, or to taste
  • 2 small green chili peppers (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
  • Salt, to taste

1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

2. Remove to a bowl and adjust the seasoning according to taste. The chutney tastes best when fresh. Store it in a jar and refrigerate. It stays fresh for up to one week.

Variation: One small, raw mango (if in season) can be substituted for the lemon or lime juice. Peel the mango, discard the pit, and blend it with the other ingredients.
