I serve this mint chutney for sandwiches, for chaat, for samosas, and just about anything. Serving this chutney with pooris and parathas takes the flatbread to a different level!

Ingredients Used in making this Mint Chutney
This chutney uses more mint leaves as the flavour of mint enhances certain chaat dishes like Papdi Bada Chaat.
First of all, you can store this chutney for at least three to four days when refrigerated. Simply grind all ingredients except lemon juice. Finally, when you want to use the chutney, squeeze in lemon juice and use it as required.
Because this chutney is such a versatile chutney, I certainly have this stocked most times. Furthermore, as this chutney uses fresh herbs, it is so healthy as well.
Another way of using this chutney is as a mix for making easy and simple pulaos for kids' lunch boxes. I have also found that kids like variety in their box and this chutney pulao certainly makes it different.
Consequently, I have frozen this chutney and used it as cubes when needed. The chutney will probably turn a little pale.
