Pudhina Chutney(Mint chutney)

Mint leaves- I cant describe how aromatic these are. I cant stop taking the flavour. A pinch of this leaves added to any dish will turn it too aromatic and flavoury.


  • Mint leaves-1 cup(Cleaned)
  • Tamarind-A small piece
  • Red chilly-2
  • Salt-To taste
  • Oil-To cook

To temper:

  • Mustard seeds-1/4 tsp
  • Urad dhal-1/4 tsp
  • Curry leaves


  1. Heat oil in a kadai and fry red chillies.
  2. Separate them out and saute the mint until it turns soft.
  3. In a mixer jar add the above after cooling and grind it by adding tamarind and salt.
  4. Add little water and grind it into a smooth paste.
  5. Add tempering elements and serve it with hot idlies.


You can saute the chutney after grinding and store it as dry version to be used for 3 days maximum.

This is an ideal combination with curd rice.

This chutney improves your digestion.

Mint leaves can be chewed as such to strengthen your tooth
