Mint Chutney (Pudina Chutney)



It is this time of the year that my backyard is full of Mint leaves. Let us explore the various ways of making a Mint Chutney. Through the following pictures, I am going to illustrate that making a pudina chutney is a very simple process.

The above ingredients clockwise (starting from top left) are: salt, green chilies & ginger root,tamarind, and Anardana* powder (Available in most Indian grocery stores). If you are not able to find it - don't worry too much about it, we can make it without the Anardana - just increase a little bit of tamarind. :-)

Basically, it is as simple as putting all the ingredients and putting them into a blender with a little bit of water to grind. Check for seasoning.

*Anardana are pomegrante seeds - available in Indian grocery stores in the seed or powdered form.

Variation: You can add some plain beaten yogurt and then adjust the seasoning.
