Notes

  1. Measuring Units used, 1 cup = 240 ml & 1 teaspoon = 5 ml.
  2. Today's recipe of Pudina Chutney yielded about 1.5 cups Chutney approximately.
  3. Do not use the mint stems, discard them completely. The stems might make the chutney bitter. You may use the tender leaves of the coriander.
  4. Never add lemon juice directly to a metal blender jar. Lemon reacts with metal & this in turn will make the chutney bitter. Mix the lemon juice later.
  5. Do not grind the leaves in an electric blender for too long. The essential oil from the mint will turn rancid and shall make the chutney bitter. 
  6. Wash the leaves very well, several time under running tap water.
  7. Do not add too much peanuts to the chutney. It will make the chutney taste bland & also light the gorgeous green color. Less is more.
  8. You may also sub the peanuts with grated coconut. In that case use just about 1 tablespoon for todays recipe.
  9. The Chutney will darken if kept exposed to air for a long time. To preserve that lovely green color store it right away.
  10. Always store it in clean, moisture free, air tight glass jar to increase it's shelf life.
  11. Use less or more chilies according to your preference. 
  12. Always use a clean moisture free spoon to scoop out the Pudina chutney from the jar. Any contact with moisture will reduce its shelf life.
  13. You may also increase or decrease the amount of roasted cumin powder according to your likings.
  14. I would highly recommend that you use the 50:50 ratio or mint:coriander for best flavors.
