5-min Dahiwali Hari Chutney – a Zero Cook, GF Dip for Kebabs and Tikkas

Mint as a herb has been known as a cure for stomach upset / bloating / flatulence along with helping in digestion. It’s also used in many mocktails / cocktails where it’s muddled and adds a lot of zing to the drink. We prefer mint in our chaats’ Green Chutney , pudina thogayal ( a thickish chutney that’s eaten with rice and sesame oil) or even in jal jeera (a summer favourite drink at home). My favourite remains the Mint and Tomato Salsa (Vegan & GF)

Today I present  a new favourite  – Dhaba style dahiwala hari chutney- a gluten free dip that is served with tandoori dishes / Tikkas and kebabs at most restaurants and dhabas.  Super easy to make, I had served this with my Baked tandoori gobhi appetiser posted a few weeks ago.

Super easy and delicious, this dip today requires less than 5 mins to blitz and serve. Make this for your next party / potluck and you are sure to have a lipsmacking dip to go with crudités, kebabs , and much more. 

Prep time – 15 Mins (even a overnight prep would help) ; no cook, makes ~ 100 ml of the dip

You would need:

Mint leaves / pudina – 2/3 cup (tightly packed)

Raw mango – 3 tsp (optional but recommended)

Salt to taste 

Coriander leaves – 1/2 cup ( I didn’t add)

Garlic – 2 cloves (I didn’t use)

Green chillies – 1 or 2 (adjust spice)

Sugar – 1/2 tsp

Chaat Masala  – 1/2 tsp

Roasted cumin powder – 1/2 tsp 

Lemon juice – 1/2 tsp (if the raw mango is not tart enough) 

Hung curd – 1/2 cup 



How to:

In a blender, blitz all ingredients except the hung curd to a smooth paste with 1-2 tsp water. Adjust salt and spice. Whisk the hung curd and add to the chutney. Refrigerate and serve.

    Such a cooling dip or chutney. I love to make it whenever I have serve it as a starter with salted chips. Tastes heavenly.

  2. Dip sounds tounge tickling. I would love to have it with some nachos or stuffed paratha. This mint flavoured dip will be a perfect accompany with kabab. Bookmarking it to try sometime.

  3. Poonam Bachhav

    This minty dip with hung curd sounds absolutely tempting. I would love to pair it with my grilled tikka.

  4. Priya Iyer

    This is one of my most favourite dips ever. I often make it as a side for parathas or rotis. With tandoori dishes, of course, this has to be there. 🙂

  5. Easy and simple and rich in flavours, mint dip looks so vibrant. perfect with tikkas,paranthas and even chips and nachos.

  6. one of my favorite dip and I will like to lick it as such. Must needed for any starters. Addition of mangoes is new to me and they look absolutely delicious.

  7. So easy yet so delicious. Definitely will make it with raw mango but will have try this next season. I always throw out the mint because I keep postponing making anything. This chutney is a great idea.
