Indian Mint Sauce

Mint Chutney

I love the combination of mint, cilantro and jalapeno on most things Indian as well as Middle Eastern salads, cucumbers and even jicama diced up.  Wonderful flavors together. This chutney sauce is Atkins Induction friendly and suitable for Keto diets.  It can be used as a dip for low-carb versions of Indian naan, for dressing cucumbers and salads, or as a condiment for Indian Mixed Grill meats or even Middle Eastern meat dishes.  I increase the sour cream and make a creamier dressing when I do this sauce for a cucumber salad.  This can also be thinned with a touch of water if you like it thinner.  You’ll see it both thick and thin in Indian Restaurants.
