MINT/PUDHINA CHUTNEY RECIPE:

 पुदीना चटनी 


     Chutney plays a vital role in south Indian food,  especially breakfast.  Any South Indian breakfast is incomplete without a chutney.  There are different types of chutneys like coconut chutney, onion chutney, groundnut chutney, tomato chutney, ginger chutney, curry leaves chutney, chow-chow chutney and so on... Mint or Pudhina chutney is an ideal side dish for breakfast like Idli or Dosa.  It tastes so good and also easy to prepare within 5 to 10 minutes. It is my younger daughter's favourite chutney and of-course  my husband's favourite too.





Mint leaves are healthy and good for digestion.  Mint leaves can also be used in Tomato chutney.  You get a red chutney with mint flavour.
