We love to eat them with potato wedges, french fries, fish fry, chicken fry or any side starter dish. The recipe is adapted from my own version of green chutney but just some yogurt makes a huge difference.
This chutney is mainly made with mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chili and lime juice. Additionally, garlic, cumin seed and some spices are added to make them more flavorful. What makes it different then regular chutney is yogurt. Yes yogurt also goes in making of this chutney.
Indian eat various kind of chutneys like coconut chutney, dates chutney, sesame seed chutney, mint chutney, peanut chutney, red chutney, tomato chutney, onion tomato chutney and there is no end to it.
In-fact there would be no Indian restaurant which wouldn’t serve this chutney with tandoori chicken / fish / paneer or any Indian side starter like pakoras etc. I love to eat this chutney with bread and roti too.
