Green Chutney

"I love green chutney prepared with fresh mint, cilantro, and green mango," says Suvir Savan. "When I'm in India I'm ecstatically happy for the simple reason that I get to eat it every single day." This chutney is traditionally made with a sil batta, a tremendously versatile stone grinder. A blender also does the job easily.
