Cilantro has good amounts of antioxidants and contains no cholesterol. These green leaves of coriander pop up in the cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, India, and Mexico and add a wondrous, complex flavor to dishes. It looks a little like parsley but that is where the similarity ends.
The citrusy leaves add a pungent kick to guacamole and salsas and, along with the roots and stems, are used to add a distinctive flavor to curries. The fragrant seed of coriander is an essential ingredient in many cuisines including exotic curries from India and aromatic Middle Eastern dishes.
Mint is the main ingredient in this chutney. So always use fresh leaves because the main flavor of the mint chutney purely depends on the mint leaves. While making chutney always add lemon juice. Do not skip it. It acts as a preservative and keeps the chutney fresh. Also, it helps to retain the green color of the chutney and adds a nice tangy flavor.
