Chutneys containing leaves from pudina (Mentha spicata) and gongura (Hibiscus sp.) are used as side dishes in Indian cuisine. However, these products are time consuming to prepare and have a very limited shelf life. Studies were conducted to develop and standardize a method for preparation of instant chutneys containing pudina and gongura leaves. Instant chutneys were prepared containing shade-dried leaves (approx. 18% moisture content) of either pudina or gongura, roasted sesame seeds and fried garlic, red chilli and cumin. These ingredients were blended, ground and packaged in sealed 100 g HDPE pouches. Products were stored (28-37°C; RH 32-48%) and analysed for physicochemical and sensory properties during storage and after reconstitution in 250 ml water. Sensory characteristics of reconstituted chutneys were rated as highly acceptable; however, products containing gongura leaves had poorer consistency than fresh chutneys. The products had a storage life of 3 months when packaged in HDPE pouches.
