Chutney is very creamy and love such chutneys which can be used as spreads as well.

Have never tried this combination, sounds super! Love the chutney served in a coconut shell, lovely...

I love this combination very much as much as like tomato coriander combo in chutneys, cute presentation with coconut shell.

I love mint and this combination is very tempting.

Mint is one of my fav and I use it regularly in making chutney. This version with dals and tomatoes sounds absolutely yum..

I really like the idea of this chutney - just all the flavors you put into it is one I really want to try!

Flavorful chutney and the subtle green color makes me drool. As you mentioned this would be a great spread as well. Hmmm paneer + bread + this chutney = food heaven only

This is one of my favorite chutney with the mix of mint, cilantro and tomato. My kids love tomato chutney and they often ask me to make it. I add the greens to make it extra flavorful :) Looks awesome Nalini!

Its been a while i make mint and tomato chutney. Your dish looks so delicious.

What a lovely combination and the picture is so well taken. I don't remember if I have used this combination of mint and tomato will surely check out..

I changed some ingredients as instructed on To avoid the sugar grittyness i made a simple syrup with sugar and water, added the honey to that, and steeped in some mint leaves. the result was smooth, fresh, and delicious.
