Mint-Garlic chutney is a great appetizer. It can pep up the meals. Tastes great with rice and daal and paranthas. It makes lovely sandwiches too. Butter the bread slices and spread a spoonful of mint chutney, the sandwiches taste amazing. Tastes great with cheese spread too!
Mint chutney can be made in bulk, stored in a glass bottle and refrigerated. It can be used for two three days.
It goes well with all types of snacks.
