Mint Cilantro Chutney/Mint Cilantro Pickle

Pin It Now!


Pudhina Coriander Chutney is a very flavorful chutney that goes well as a great accompaniment to any meal.The key to any great pickle/chutney is to match the heat from the chillies to the sourness from the tamarind you can make chutney or pickle with anything flavorful.

Ingredients
3 bunches cilantro chopped
2 bunches mint leaves chopped
10 big cloves garlic
10 hot chillies(5 red chillies & 5 green chillies)
1 piece ginger
1 big cherry size tamarind
3-4 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Method
Heat oil in a pan add garlic stir or a few mins then add chillies,ginger when they are roasted add tamarind,salt,chopped cilantro and mint.Stir cook till the leaves have nicely wilted.Make a paste in the blender adding water about half cup.

For Pickle
Heat about 1/4-1/2 cup oil add the mint and cilantro paste stir till the paste thickens and changes color.Add more oil for longer storage.

Note:My chillies maybe hotter than yours so adjust to the tanginess from the tamarind.Seasonings like mustard,cumin seeds,urad dal and curry leaves can be added if preferred.
