Mint Cilantro Chutney (Hari Chutney)

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

This Mint Cilantro Chutney (Hari Chutney) is bright & refreshing, and quick & easy. I love recipes when all you need to do is throw some stuff in the food processor to make something fresh and tasty.

Enjoy this versatile chutney with

Hari?

Hari in this instance means green.

Vegan yogurt

I use Kite Hill Plain Unsweetened Almond Milk Yogurt in this recipe. I suspect the coconut kind might also work well with the mint in this recipe. The yogurt makes this chutney cool and a tad creamy. If you would like a more traditional Hari Chutney, without the creaminess leave out the yogurt, add ~1/3 cup of chopped onion and a little water to get the blade moving, you could also add peanuts to make it thicker.

Jalepeño

I use food prep gloves when removing the seeds and ribs from the jalapeños because I’ve had Jalapeño Hand and it was a painful lost night of sleep.

If you want more heat spice leave the seeds in the jalapeños. For less heat, you can use half or the jalapeño. If you taste your chutney and it has too much kick, add more yogurt to tone it down.
