The recipe is very simple: process in food processor 2 bunches of mint, 1 green chili and 1 clove of garlic (optional). Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth with juice of 1 lime and salt to taste.
My favorite way to enjoy mint chutney is to mix it with some fresh rice & butter! yumm... but since I was out on rice, I decided to mix it with some couscous instead! I was a bit worried about how couscous and mint chutney would go together but they were perfect! I added some chopped tomatoes and cilantro for the extra salad-ish feeling :D The results were surprisingly good! I hope you try it :)
1 C couscous
1.5 C water
mint chutney (as many or as little as you want)
some chopped tomatoes
1 Tbsp oil/butter
salt & pepper
Follow the package directions to cook couscous (I heated 1.5C water. When the water starts to boil add couscous & salt to taste, remove from heat, cover and let stream for 5mins. Remove the lid and fluff up using a fork). Couscous is a great fast cooking grain.. I find it milder in taste and so lends very well to indian spices.
To the cooked couscous, add oil/butter, add tomatoes, season per taste and enjoy!
