For a smoother, more vibrant-green dip, process all the ingredients in a food processor. Garnish the dip with mint or cilantro leaves or both. Serve it with warm regular or whole-wheat naan, pappadum (a thin, crisp, nutty Indian wafer), or raw vegetables. There are many ways to make this recipe: Try leaving out the mayo, adding more yogurt, or stirring in lime juice to taste.
