1   Coriander - tough stems removed
1 1/4 cups 50g / 1.8ozFresh mint leaves - (packed)
1/2   Green bell pepper - deribbed and
  Coarsely chopped
1   Jalapeno pepper with seeds (large)
2 tablespoons 30mlWater
2 tablespoons 30mlFresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt

Combine the coriander, mint, bell pepper and jalapeno in a food processor. Process, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary, until the herbs and peppers are minced.

Add the water; process until the mixture is a finely textured, slightly watery puree.

Transfer the chutney to a nonreactive bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and salt. Adjust seasonings.

Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Any leftover chutney may be used in the Tandoori-Style Chicken Salad.

This condiment is pleasantly spicy. If you want it searingly so, add another jalapeno or adjust at the end with a little cayenne pepper. It is especially good paired with a sweet mango chutney.
