Pudina Chutney / Mint Dip

Mint is one of those herbs which is very easily available in India and so very popular and chutney is my favorite preparation to make.  We all make all kinds of chutneys , rice , paratha and drinks. This is one of my favorite. I just love to serve it with warm rice and ghee . Goes well with crackers and chips too. Mix a tbsp of chutney with 1/4 cup yogurt and you have a wonderful dip.


 Mint Leaves - 1 cup
 Urad Dal - 1 tsp
 Hot Green Chili - 2 , slit into half
 Coconut - 1 tsp
 Salt - 1/4 tsp
 Tamarind Pulp - 1/8 tsp or a 1/4 inch piece
 Oil  - 1/2 tsp

  1.  Heat oil in a pan and urad dal and let it turn golden.
  2. Add coconut , green chilli and tamarind and cook for a minute.
  3. Add the mint leaves and switch of the flame and let the leaves wilt a little.
  4. When cooled add salt and grind without water if possible and serve
