Mint-Cilantro Chutney

The Boyfriend and I had an amazing Indian feast the other night.  I will be sharing the recipes I created with both vegan and vegetarian options.  He made goat curry; obviously, I didn't eat any of that and I won't be sharing that recipe.

So, onto the chutney recipe.  Plain yogurt (vegan or dairy both work super well.  I recently tried Wildwood Plain Soy Yogurt and love it!) mint, cilantro, garlic, salt and olive oil create such a wonderfully simple sauce.  It helps tame the heat and adds a lovely acidity and brightness to any dish you serve it with.


Cilantro -Mint Chutney
  • 2 cups plain yogurt (vegan or dairy) 
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1 cup fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • In a food processor , process the garlic and salt into a paste; add the yogurt and herbs and process until smooth.  Stir in the olive oil at the end.  Let chutney chill for at least 2 hours before serving for best results. 
 Stay tuned for the rest of the recipes.  Those that aren't naturally vegan will have both vegan and vegetarian options:
  • Muttur Paneer
  • Chappatis
  • Cilantro-Cumin Basmati Rice
  • Spicy Tomato-Onion Chutney


  1. Wow! That plate of Indian food looks AMAZING!!

  2. I could SO grub on that right now. :) Mint chutney is my favorite!
