Zesty Mint Chutney Recipe


  • 2 cups packed roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems
  • 1 cup packed roughly chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion (about 1 small)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened grated coconut
  • 1 tablespoon juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 to 2 small hot green chilies (such as Thai bird chilies), stemmed
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup water, plus more as needed
  • Kosher salt, to taste


  1. Combine cilantro, mint, onion, coconut, lemon juice, chilies, garlic, and ginger in the bowl of a food processor.
