What ingredients do I need to make Kashmiri Walnut Mint Chutney – Doon Chutney?

Walnuts, plain yogurt, green chilies, salt, mint leaves, and cumin seeds.

Method-


First rinse and soak the walnuts for 3 to 4 hours. Second discard the water used to soak the walnuts. Further after 3 to 4 hours of soaking, place the nuts in a blender. Furthermore, add in the yogurt, green chilies, mint leaves and salt to the blender and blend into a paste to a dip like consistency. Some people like some texture to it while some like it smooth. I have minced mine smooth. 

Once minced, finally add in toasted cumin seeds to the chutney.

Benefits of Walnuts –

Walnuts also have been shown to ease the type of inflammation that leads to heart disease, and they may help lower your chances of a blood clot that could cause a heart attack. Two large studies found that five servings of nuts a week can reduce your risk of heart disease by as much as 50%. Here is an article that lists out the benefits of walnuts.

How to store –

This chutney can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. It tends to thicken so you can add more yogurt while serving.
