Coriander/Cilantro Mint Chutney is an extremely popular condiment for most North Indian 'Chaat' dishes. Its spicy taste and smooth texture are perfect to tickle your taste buds and add the extra zing to snacks/appetizers like Sev Puri, Dahi Batata Puri, Ragada Samosa/Cutlet, Bhel Puri or any other 'Chaat' Dish. Also it serves as a great dip for samosas or even mirchi bajji and is also a wonderful spread for sandwiches!
