Kiwi and Mint Chutney

    While grocery shopping, I noticed a box of kiwi fruit. You may be surprised to know that I had never tasted it before till that day. Intrigued by the fruit, I went ahead and bought it. I was quite blown away by the taste of the fruit – it was a great blend of sweet and tart flavors. I discovered later that it is also a very good source of Vitamin C and can be used in smoothies, cake toppings and chutneys/dips. This combination goes well with breads, chips and rotis or parathas.

    Method:

    • Wash and chop the mint and coriander leaves.
    • Peel the kiwi fruit and chop it.
    • Take all the ingredients in a mixer and blend it to form a purée.‎
    • Store the dip in a bowl and keep it refrigerated. Kept refrigerated, it will last for about a week.
    • In the picture, I’ve shown a veg sandwich made using this chutney as the spread. The texture of the chutney can also be seen as a part of the close-up picture of the bowl.

    Tips :

    • If your kiwi fruit is sweet, you can add lemon juice. As always, taste before adding.
    • You can also make this using either coriander or mint. You need not use both.
