Tomato Mint Coriander Chutney (Salsa) | Vegan & GF | Easy dips

Saw this rather interesting Salsa / dip at a Medical Practitioners website and noticed that most of the recipes didn’t contain any fat / oil and worked on the basis of vegetables releasing their own liquid and that helped in cooking. I tried a few recipes from that website, and this is one we loved a lot. 

Pair it up with pretty much anything from crudités to nachos to wafers or even chapati / tortillas. Its vegan, Gluten Free and fat free – couldn’t ask for more, isnt it?

What you need:

  • 3 cups fresh coriander (cilantro), washed and de-stemmed
  • 2 cups fresh mint leaves, washed and de-stemmed
  • 4 dark green chilies (I used mild variety)
  • 5 grams ginger (about 1 tsp)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt to taste (Approx 1/2 tsp)
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes
  • water – approx 1/4 cup (use if needed)

Optional Addons:

  • black salt
  • 1/2 medium-sized red onion – didn’t use
  • 2 cloves of garlic – didn’t use


How to make:

  1. Add the ingredients into a blender and blend them to make chutney.
  2. You might have to stop a few times to push the ingredients down towards the blades. Add a little water if required. Squeeze lemon at the end and mix well.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days or freeze.
