Cilantro Mint Chutney version 2.0

For the last few weeks I have been running around trying to complete a long list of projects that I have taken on. Even though I have completed some,  it seems like it is going to take just a little longer for me to finish up most of them.  These distractions are the main reason that I have not been able to devote enough time to this site. In addition I ended up with a fever last week that set me back another couple of days. I am hoping that from now on I am able to get back to blogging more regularly.........fingers crossed :-)

Moving on, wraps and sandwiches stuffed with a lot of vegetables are my favorite kind of food. Last  week when I was looking for a quick solution to dinner, I decided to make an Indian style veggie wrap.I will post the recipe for the wrap in my next post,  but first here is the chutney I used to add some flavor to the wrap. This chutney is similar to this one that I had posted earlier, but the big difference is the addition of yogurt. The yogurt added a nice creaminess to the chutney that really enhanced its taste and texture. I used this chutney in both sandwiches and wraps and loved it in both, but it can be used in chaats/ with samosas/ or as a dip, pretty much any way that you care to use it :-)
