    I added garlic cloves (2), sm pc/ginger, and dollop of yogurt to smooth it out  -  17 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was a little disappointed with this recipe. At first, I didn't like a brownish color of this chutney. At second, I had a difficulty to blend this chutney to a paste, I had just small dry mint pieces. This recipe, in my opinion, consists too less liquid, so I had to add oil to grind. If you add just water, it doesn't help, or you need too much water. The taste was a little bland.  -  14 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
