Separate the mint leaves from the stalk, and wash them in running water. Likewise, detach the coriander leaves from their stalk, and wash them properly. Remove the stem of the green chilles and wash them too. Add all the ingredients in the blender and blend. To give the chutney a good consistency, add a little water. Instead of dry mango powder, fresh raw mangoes can also be used, if they are available. Mint chutney goes well with baigan fry, samosa and idly.
