Mint Cilantro Chutney

This sauce is wonderful with grilled or roasted lamb.


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh mint leaves loosely packed
  • 1 1/2 cups cilantro leaves loosely packed
  • 3 jalapeno chilies seeded and chopped
  • 3 Tbs. chopped onion
  • 1 large garlic clove peeled
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger root
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3 - 5 Tbs. water


  • 1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor fitted with a steel knife. Process until ingredients are smooth, adding enough water until you get a smooth, spoonable paste.

    2. Taste for seasoning and adjust as desired. Chill thoroughly. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week. Stir sauce just before serving as it does separate.
