Pudina (Mint) Chutney


  • Pudina (mint) – 1 bunch
  • Coriander leaves – 1 bunch
  • Channa dal – 1 tbsp
  • Channa dalia – 2 tbsp
  • Red chillies – 3
  • Ginger – 1/2 inch piece
  • Garlic – 3 cloves
  • Tamarind extract – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – a needed
  • Oil – 1 tsp


Heat oil in a pan and add channa dal, red chillies, ginger, garlic and chopped pudina and coriander leaves. I also use the upper part of the pudina and coriander stem for the chutney. After the leaves reduce in volume remove from fire and let it cool. Grind the mixture along with tamarind extract, channa dalia, salt and water as needed to make a fine paste. Heat oil in a pan, add seasoning ingredients and once the mustard seeds start to splutter pour the seasoning into the chutney. Goes very well with idli and dosa, uttappam etc.
