This is a recipe that’s pretty different from most other recipes out there, and you’ll believe me when you taste it!


  • 2 cups fresh Mint Leaves
  • 1 cup fresh Coriander Leaves (Cilantro)
  • 1/4 cup sliced Onions
  • 3 tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 12 Green Chillies (or Serrano Peppers)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Jeera (Cumin Seeds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Salt (or use regular salt)


Combine all the ingredients and grind to a smooth paste using 2 tablespoon water. Taste and adjust the seasonings by adding more salt and lemon juice.
