Mint chutney is a super easy recipe to make that goes with a variety of dishes. This chutney adds a refreshing flavor that can’t be beat.


  • 23 cups mint leaves
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 2 tbsp green chilly
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 tbsp cumin powder (optional)
  • 1/4 tbsp chaat masala (optional)


  1. Remove stalks or stems from mint leaves. Rinse the leaves under cold water for a few mins using a colander and dry them.
  2. Blend mint leaves, green chilies, ginger, salt, cumin powder, and chaat masala until smooth. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water as needed.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
  4. Taste and adjust spices to suit your personal needs.
  5. Serve this refreshing chutney with samosas, pakodas (fritters), Indian curry dishes, and sandwiches.



  1. Make sure to discard the stems or stalks of leaves as they may add a bitter flavor.
  2. Add some sugar or yogurt if it tastes too spicy to you.
  3. You can store the chutney in an air-tight container for up to 4-5 days. 
  4. In case you want to make mint chutney in large quantity in advance then freeze it in ice cube trays. Once fully frozen, store the cubes in a ziplock plastic bag. When ready to serve, thaw as needed.
