Mint is one of those herbs which is very easily available in India and so very popular and chutney is my favorite preparation to make. We all make all kinds of chutneys , rice , paratha and drinks. This is one of my favorite. I just love to serve it with warm rice and ghee . Goes well with crackers and chips too. Mix a tbsp of chutney with 1/4 cup yogurt and you have a wonderful dip.
