Mint chutney is a popular chutney or dip in Indian cuisine that has many variations It's a great green chutney with serve with Indian snacks. I bought a mint plant the other day and its growing like a wild bush in its small pot. To use up some of the fresh and insanely flavourful leaves, I made a mint coconut chutney to go with wheat dosas.
Mint / Pudina Coconut Chutney
1 cup fresh grated coconut (not desiccated)
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
A tiny piece of ginger
A tiny piece of tamarind
2 green chillies (adjust to taste)
Salt to taste
To make chutney - grind all ingredients with very little water. Serve immediately with dosa, or even rice. This goes really well with the slightly dense and bland wheat dosa.
