Perfect dip for starters
This is a standard Indian mint chutney served with poppadums along with onion salad and sweet mango chutney in most of the restaurants in the UK. It can be used as an Indian dipping sauce that goes well with all tandoori starters such as pineapple stuffed paneer tikka, deep-fried starters such as onion bhaji, vegetable pakora, bread vada. I whip up a batch of this dip or carrot dip or eggplant chutney to go with snacks, toast and starters.
Yogurt mint sauce recipe Variations
You could add couple of garlic cloves while blending to impart an extra flavour.
Add extra chillies to make it extra hot.
You could swap freshly ground black pepper for green chilli.
Combine the ground paste with greek yogurt/hung curd to get a thick consistency so that you can use it as an Indian mint chutney to spread on a sandwich.
