Mint or Pudina as it is called in Indian Language is a herb which helps in digestion. This chutney is quite easy to make and can be had with idli or dosa. So here goes..
Fresh Coconut - 1/2 cup
Mint Leaves - 1 cup
Small Onions - 1/2 cup
Red Chillies - 5 or 6 (according to taste)
Tamarind - gooseberry sized
Salt as required
Oil as required
Wash the mint leaves and fry them in oil and keep aside. Fry the red chillies also and keep them aside. Grind the leaves and fried chillies along with coconut, tamarind, and salt to a coarse paste.
Heat oil in the kadai and add mustard seeds.. once they splutter add small onions and fry them till golden brown. Add the ground paste and fry for a few minutes till good smell comes. Switch off and now it is ready to serve.
**The same recipe can be done using Mint and Coriander leaves.
