Yogurt Mint Sauce (Restaurant style recipe with Video)

Yogurt mint sauce is a fresh and cool chutney that is perfect to serve with poppadums and starters. This recipe is easy and quick to make with minimal ingredients that are mostly available in kitchen pantry.

Perfect dip for starters

This is a standard chutney served with poppadums along with onion salad and sweet mango chutney, in most of the Indian restaurants in UK. This dip goes well with all tandoori starters such as pineapple stuffed paneer tikka, deep fried starters such as onion bhaji, bread vada. This is my daughter’s favourite spread on her toast. I whip up a batch of this dip or carrot dip or eggplant chutney to go with snacks, toast and starters. 

Is this yogurt mint sauce recipe adaptable?

Feel free to customise this recipe to suit your taste preference. You could add couple of garlic cloves while blending to impart an extra flavour. Extra chillies could be added to please chilli lovers. You could swap freshly ground black pepper for green chilli.
