MINT CHUTNEY / PUDINA CHUTNEY

Posted in : CHUTNEY on by : Divya Suresh

Fresh Mint leaves from my Kitchen garden…. Immediately I prepared chutney using them. It tastes entirely different … so fresh… very aromatic. It is used as the side dish with Huli ( sambar ), Saaru ( rasam), rotti, poori, chapati etc. It is also eaten with rice by adding few drops of oil.

 

 

 

        Ingredients :

  • Mint leaves –  1 cup ( tightly packed )
  • Grated fresh coconut – 1/2 cup
  • Split black lentils/ Urad dal – 2 tbsp
  • Red chillies – 4 to 6  or according to spice level and green chillies can also be used
  • Tamarind – 1″ piece
  • Salt to taste

 

        For tempering :

  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp

 

       PROCEDURE :

  • Rinse the mint leaves well in enough water
  • Heat a pan and dry roast urad dal, red chillies, mint leaves, tamarind and coconut one by one
  • Take out from the heat and let it cool
  • Add salt and grind coarsely using little water
  • Prepare tempering and pour over the chutney
