Cilantro Mint Chutney

My niece Pournima taught me this recipe.

1 tsp cumin powder
1.5 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper powder
2 TBSP jaggery powder
4 cloves of garlic roasted whole
2 tsp of roasted peanuts
1 small lemon’s juice
1/2 cup Mint
4 cups Cilantro
1/2 cup of fresh coconut 1″ pieces( If you have grated coconut use 1 cup, but if have a whole coconut then do not bother to grate it, just use half a cup of coconut pieces)
1 TBSP of olive oil
1-2 TBSP of coconut water(which was from the coconut used to grate) or water

Grind all together using as little water/coconut water as possible. I used a vita mix for this.

Goes well for sandwiches, dosas and thick millet-greens thick crepes.

I made some variations to the original recipe like instead of white sugar used jaggery, did not use green chilis, instead of 8 raw garlic cloves used 4 roasted ones, did not powder peanuts first and instead of water used coconut water.
