Mint Chutney Recipe | Pudina Chutney | Green Chutney

Mint Chutney or Pudina Chutney is a deliciously spicy condiment/chutney prepared from fresh Mint Leaves (Pudina), Coriander leaves, Ginger, Garlic and curd/yogurt. The thick curd added to the base gives a creamy silky texture to the dip and enhances its taste.

Chutney is akin to sauce in the cuisines of Indian subcontinent. Chutneys can be wet, semi-dry or dry and can be sweet, sour or spicy. Many times chutneys that contrast in taste and color are served together to tingle the taste buds in every possible way.

Pudina chutney is an important part of many street side foods like Aloo Tikki, Raj kachori, Chaats, Dahi Vada or Bhalla, papdi chaat, Vada Pav etc.

  1. Thanks for the recipe, turned out great! I fried my garlic cloves in a bit of oil and mixed it up with the leaves before grinding it.

    • Thanks for reaching out to us Sweety. Since this recipe for making Mint Chutney contains curd (yogurt), it’s not advisable to store it for more than a week. If you want to freeze it, then you can skip adding the curd or add it later when you want to use the chutney. I will also post a recipe for making Mint Chutney without curd on the blog very soon.
