Sauces & Condiments matter to your pallet more than you think. They really do add to your food. The good thing about sauces is how easy it is to make them and mostly requires a handful of ingredients. This is the recipe for India's most common Chutney, goes with all Indian Cuisines and has a lot of variation, Mint & Coriander Chutney. Here's how you can use this sauce? You can have this as a side with most types of tikkas and kebabs and even with Mughlai Cuisine. You may use it as a dressing for your sandwiches too. You can make a mix of this with mayonnaise to have a Mint Mayo at home, to go with Burgers as well.

- Grind till they form a paste, should be dark green in color.
- Now, mix the paste with the hung curd. The color would now start becoming lighter.
- Lastly, strain the chutney using a sieve and a spoon. This will make your chutney finer.
- You can always add water to the chutney as required to get their desired consistency and enjoy. I would recommend adding 3-4 tbsp. so it's not too thick.
