What Can I Have Mint Chutney With?

  1. Switch your tomato ketchup with this chutney as a base in your sandwich (tomato ketchup contains high fructose corn syrup which is unhealthy).
  2. Can be a base in hot dogs or burgers.

Here are 10 dishes you can have with mint chutney


Mint Chutney Sandwich

Variations of Mint Cilantro Chutney

  • Throw some roasted split chickpeas or peanuts in to make the chutney thick.
  • Add extra 2 Tbsps of water if you would like to get a more watery consistency depending on the dish you would like to use it for (e.g. as a sauce with lemon rice)
  • Add 1-2 Tbsps of plain curd (yoghurt) to get a creamy texture. This one works as a toothsome dip for potato wedges or fish chips
