Cranberry Mint Coriander Chutney or Green Chutney is a flavorful condiment or chutney served with Indian appetizers or chaat recipes. Green chutney is made with cranberries, coriander, mint and some Indian spices. Unique aroma of green chutney is absolutely amazing and enhances the taste and flavor of any dish!!
Cranberry Mint Coriander Chutney or Green Chutney is a very popular chutney recipe from North India. Cranberry mint coriander chutney is a very refreshing and flavorful dip/sauce served with starters. The tanginess from the fresh cranberries, minty flavor from mint and coriander gives this chutney a very refreshing flavor. Traditionally, mint coriander chutney is made using lemon juice. Adding fresh cranberries gives this chutney a very distinct tangy flavor and a vibrant reddish green color. This chutney goes well with many of the Indian starters, such as kebob, tikkas, samosa, pakoras (fritters) or even with Indian chaat recipes such as Ragda Pattice, Pani Poori, Bhel Poori, Sev Poori, Aloo Tikki.
There are many ways you can make this chutney. The proportion of coriander, mint, green chili, cranberries may be adjusted as per taste. Some like more coriander and less mint, as mint is quite strong herb. Some like it mildly spiced, wheres others like it more spicy, add green chili as per taste. Cranberries add tangy flavor to it, thus giving chutney a nice reddish-green color.
I love to have chutneys at all times in my home, be it sweet and tangy Tamarind Chutney (imli ki chutney), coriander mint chutney or cranberry mint coriander chutney. These chutneys are a must have in my family. These chutneys come in so handy for making a variety of Indian recipes.
How to make Coriander Mint Chutney?
I normally take one bunch of coriander leaves (around 2 cups) and half a bunch of mint leaves (around 1 cup). Wash the coriander and mint leaves thoroughly, add the leaves to a blender. Add cranberries, ginger, green chili as per taste, roasted cumin seeds powder, black salt. Grind to a smooth paste, if required add 1-2 TBSP of water for grinding. Adjust the seasoning – salt as per taste. Mix well and store it into a air tight container in refrigerator. Enjoy this refreshing and flavorful chutney with your favorite recipes 😋
