I have been looking high and low for a good mint chutney recipe. This was great with garlic naan and samosas. I added a seeded jalapeno and three cloves of garlic. I also omitted onion because I don't care for raw onion.
This is a really great chutney and I used it with homemade falafels on a pita and also just to dip the falafels in. I can also use this with kebabs. The only changes I made is I added jaggery powder (sugar cane) instead of sugar and I added half a green chili to give it some kick. Very yummy!
This is DELICIOUS when served with some simply cooked lambchops!
