Coconut Mint Chutney

19 Mar

Mint chutney is the most popular condiment in India.  It is served with almost every Indian dish because it so, so flavorful.  Dolly Auntie taught me to make a twist on the original by adding some fresh grated coconut and yogurt for a creamier version.  It was absolutely DELICIOUS.  Her and Uncle have a huge field of mint in their backyard which made making this recipri extra fun!
