Mint-Cilantro Chutney [Green Chutney]
One of my favorite condiments is green chutney. It is so refreshing; it reminds me of cool summer days. It can be accompanied by most of the appetizers and it is also great with a meal. It is good for health as it helps digest the food properly. You can make this chutney in bulk and freeze for weeks to come. So here comes the simple yet flavorful recipe of Mint-Cilantro chutney.
