Mint curd Chutney/Dahi Mint Chutney/Yogurt Mint Dip is a flavourful dip that is prepared with mint, coriander, ginger, chili, and curd.


The specialty of this chutney is its creamy texture and a great taste because of curd. Usually, this mint curd dip is served in restaurants as a side dish for Tikkas, Kebabs, and Briyani. It is similar to our "chaat green chutney" which we use for preparing all chaat varieties, but only that we are adding curd extra. Since we are adding curd, the mint flavor is not strong like the chaat chutney and renders its very own unique taste. This chutney is mainly served in combination with spicy dishes as it helps to ease the effect of spiciness from the main course.

So, here we are with the recipe for "Mint curd Chutney/Dahi Mint Chutney/Yogurt Mint Dip"

Ingredients:
  • 1 and 1/2 cups tightly packed Mint Leaves
  • 1 cup tightly packed Coriander leaves
  • 1 cup thick Curd
  • 1 inch Ginger (skin peeled and chopped)
  • 2 Green Chillies (alter according to spiciness)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chat Masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon Jeera powder/Roasted cumin powder
  • A pinch Amchur powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt (alter according to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sugar

1) In a blender, add the mint leaves, coriander leaves, Ginger, Green chilies, salt and grind to a coarse mixture.

Tips:

1) Always use thick curd as the chutney turns watery if you don't.

2) You can also add a few pods of Garlic along with Ginger.


3) In some hotels, they prefer to add few cashews while grinding as it gives a thick consistency and enhances the taste as well.
