Mint Chutney!

When life hands you lemons , you make lemonade; when life hands you mint overgrowing your vegetable patch, well you head out and get’em and make mint chutney!

Here is my mother-in-law’s recipe :


1. a couple of handfuls of mint leaves (washed)

2. a small raspberry sized ball of tamarind

3. 2 green chillies (you can reduce this number to reduce the spice level)

4.Garlic (2 pods)

5. Ginger (size of about 2 garlic pods)

6. salt and a pinch of sugar


1. roast the mint leaves in a little olive oil till they wilt

2. Add all the above ingredients into the blender and blend to chutney consistency.

3. Taste and adjust salt levels.
