  • 1 tbsp fresh mint leaves (chopped finely)
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves (chopped finely)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • Salt and black pepper for seasoning

  2. Chop the coriander and mint very finely using a sharp knife.
  3. Mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl, including a good helping of salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  4. Voila! Done. Serve with your favourite curry!
