In desi cooking, mint coriander chutney is a brilliant accompaniment to kebabs, samosas, sandwiches, biryanis, chaats, and even green salads. It has a sour and spicy taste yet refreshing and slightly sweet. If you’re keen to add a bit of flavor to your snacks, try my lip-smacking mint coriander chutney recipe. It’s easy to make and only takes about 15 minutes once you have all the ingredients ready. 


  • Mint leaves to fill one small bow, chopped
  • Coriander to fill two small bowls, chopped
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 small piece of ginger
  • 3 green chilies
  • ½ tsp lemon juice


1. Fill one small bowl of properly rinsed and chopped mint leaves. Remove the stems while chopping, as they can make the chutney taste bitter.

2. Follow the same process with coriander. Rinse and chop well to fill two small bowls with coriander leaves.

3. Add both ingredients to the grinder along with ½ teaspoon of salt, two cloves of garlic, and one tiny piece of ginger.

4. Add 2 to 3 green chilies to the mix for spice. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of lemon juice over the ingredients to achieve that sour taste of the chutney.

5. Before starting the grinder, add 1-2 tablespoons of water for a smooth consistency. If you feel the chutney’s texture is coarse even after grinding, add another tablespoon of water to get the smoothness you prefer.

Once it’s ready, store the chutney in an airtight jar for up to three days in the refrigerator. Never freeze it as its texture changes when thawed. 

The Bottom Line

You’ll be sure to love this mint coriander chutney and impress your friends. The simple recipe can be done quickly and can be enjoyed on a delicious sandwich, with french fries, salads, kebabs, or anything else.
