They can be sweet, tangy or spicy. For instance, Coconut and Red Chilli Chutney can be served along with South Indian delicacies or Imli ki Chutney which is used for making Chaat. However, one of the chutneys that I regularly make at home is Mint and Coriander (Cilantro) Chutney.
Coriander Mint Chutney is a very popular chutney in India. Most people make it and all of them have a different way to prepare it. This cilantro mint chutney is my mom’s recipe and whoever has tasted it has claimed that this is the best chutney they have ever tasted.
So, this time when she was visiting me, I asked her to make it in front of me and I noted the ingredients and their ratio. Today when I made it myself with the help of her notes, it came out just the same as hers.
To make this green chutney, coriander leaves (cilantro), green chilies, mint leaves, lemon juice, ginger and garlic are put in a blender and made into a smooth paste. Easy right? :). The chutney can then be stored in an airtight container in refrigerator for upto 4 days.

The amount of green chillies can be adjusted according to your preference. You can increase or decrease it. It will also depend on how hot the chilli is.
Do not keep this cilantro chutney for more than 4 days in refrigerator. It loose its taste and becomes bitter.
Store the chutney in an airtight container. It is best to store it in a glass container.
