Peanut & Mint Chutney Bites

This is very-light, tasty, crispy tea time snack. It’s easy to make in large quantities for kitty parties or get-to-gathers. Prepare the cracker just before you plan to serve otherwise they'll loose crispyness. It’s a great snack and very flexible with different ingredients like nuts or berries that can be mixed and matched. It also gives me a chance to be creative with presentation.


  • 1-1/2 cup Mint Leaves
  • 1 cup Cilantro
  • 1/2 cup Peanut
  • 1/4 cup Dalia/Pappula
  • 3-4 Green Chilies
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1-1/2 tbsp Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • Salt to taste

-- Other Ingredients

  • Your Favorite Crackers
  • Cream cheese
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Dry Cranberries


1. Toast peanuts in pan. Toast dalia as well. Let them cool down both completely. Blend them until its coarse powder form.

2. Mix all chutney ingredients in blender with little water and peanuts-dalia powder. Blend well and make chutney.

3. In serving platter, arrange crackers.

4. Top it cracker with chutney, cheddar cheese, cream cheese and cranberries.

5. Serve immediately.
