Green chutney raita is one of the best curd dips that you can use as a side of your meal or with your snacks. Mint raita or green chutney raita a popular Indian style simple Mint Dip made from fresh mint leaves and curd (plain yoghurt) is a perfect accompaniment for HYDERABADI DUM BIRYANI, Lemon Rice -A Flavorful Rice, parathas and snacks like paneer tikka or kebabs.

This is a restaurant-style recipe of green chutney raita that you can make in less than 10 minutes! I am not sure what to call this recipe? Raita or a chutney? However, after a long discussion with my handsome hubby, we agreed to call it raita when served with food and dip or chutney when served with snacks.

Some people like this green chutney raita to be really thin and runny. If you find that it is too thick for your liking, try adding a couple of drops of milk to it to thin the coriander and mint chutney out.

If you prefer a thicker dip or raita, don’t place all the ingredients in a blender as I suggest below as blenders really thin it out. Instead, blend the coriander, mint, garlic and chillies into a paste. Then whisk this paste with the yoghurt to perfect this coriander and mint chutney.

Very tangy tasty dip generally serve as an accomplishment with kababs and biryani. Today I made this with kababs and satay for an evening get together.

Finally, I would like to suggest you a few more recipes from my blog
