With a toddler at home mornings are always busy. Getting out of the door at the mornings is very challenging not only because of the kids, but also because of cooking. This chutney recipe is a quick solution for my time crunch.
I usually have green chutney on hand just like ginger garlic paste. Among many of its uses in various recipes, this instant mint chutney with coconut is the most I use it for. More variety to be shared in upcoming weeks.

Check out my Basic Green chutney recipe for more about it.

This mint chutney goes well with almost all south Indian breakfast recipes. Its refreshing flavor makes it very suitable for morning breakfasts.

Hope you will give this recipe a try & spread Joy & happiness among family & friends.
