Mint chutney

Mint Chutney mixed in with Yogurt,
along with Dahl and Basmati Rice

This delicious sauce can be served with just about any Indian meals. When mixed with yogurt, it makes a cooling sauce that helps fiery dishes go down smoothly. I like to make about a cup of it at a time, and then mix it up with yogurt right before serving, but you can also use it as is to spice up your meal. Try it with Chicken Tikka or Rogan Josh. It can also be served with crackers as a snack or appetizer!

1 c fresh mint leaves
