Mint Lime Chutney
A small tweak on a classic.
Tiny tweaks, I'm talking small.
I love this stuff so much and realized it's now a favorite thing to put on potatoes. (and tots! Try it....trust) Of course it's fantastic with naan, and roast meats and veg.
Ready? Let's go.
Makes about 1 1/2 - 2 cups
2 cups fresh cilantro, packed
1 cup fresh mint leaves, packed
1/4 medium onion
1/4 cup water, more as needed
2 tbsp fresh lime juice (or lemon)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh Thai chili, OR 1/4 tsp red chili flakes Optional: 1 heaping tbsp honey several dashes rice wine vinegar
Toss everything in a blender and blend until it has a nice texture.
Add water and adjust seasonings to taste.
Note: I left mine a bit more liquid, but you can also add more ingredients if you want it more of a paste for rubs, for chicken or lamb, or to use in stuffed dishes.
