“This chutney makes a good accompaniment for samosas or bhajias (fritters). For a totally different flavour, replace yoghurt with 2 tbsp tamarind pulp.” This recipe is from the book Qmin by Anil Ashokan (Allen & Unwin, $39.95 pbk).

1.Pick and wash the mint and coriander leaves. Slit the chillies, remove the seeds and chop finely. Peel the ginger and chop finely.

This mix may be preserved by adding a thin layer of oil on top and storing in the refrigerator. Makes about 1 1/3 cups.
2.To serve, beat the yoghurt, add to paste and mix well. Adjust seasoning and serve cold.
