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
