Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of six wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind. 


Recipe: Cilantro-Mint Chutney

Recipe: Cilantro-Mint Chutney

The Parkdale Market has lots of fresh herbs for sale right now, and I've got a hankering for Indian food. I just might have to make a mess of "Yum!" for supper tonight. ;) I've made a few variations of this Indian-style chutney, and have enjoyed each and every one. It is a lovely cool counterpart to hot curries, but has enough of a kick on its own to get your engines revving! I generally use chocolate mint when I make it, but any mint will do.


  • 3/4 cup (packed) fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup (packed) fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime/lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 jalapeño chili, seeded and minced
  • 1/3 cup (or more) plain yogurt

Blend ingredients in blender or food processor. This chutney can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.

I have also added the following ingredients on occasion, just to change things up a bit:

  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/3 cup spring onions, chopped
  • 2 tsp cumin seed
