Coconut Mint Chutney
One of the easiest ways to incorporate the six tastes to create balance for the whole family is the addition of fresh herbal chutneys and sauces. That way each person can add more of a certain quality to the meal to make it specific per constitution, the season and to reflect the experience of the day. Our Coconut Mint Chutney is a great example of a balancing herbal chutney.
