This mint chutney is one of the basic recipe in chutney varieties. Idli, dosa, vada are daily routine tiffins for us South Indians. But we prepare many  varieties of chutney's that makes our routine breakfast tasty . We prepare pudina/mint chutney using different combinations like onions & tomatoes, mint & coriander, curry leaves+mint+ coriander etc., Today's my recipe is very easy with mint & coconut . This chutney goes well with Idli, dosa, vada, panniyaram/ Gupta ponganalu, adai and even with khichidi.

◆ Adding pudina at last while grinding gives you good flavour and texture. Do not grind chutney too smooth after adding pudina.

◆ Adding ginger is optional but it gives good flavour to the chutney.

◆ You can also add garlic if you like it.


● Cut green chillies into half or just cut in the middle. Otherwise it will split while frying.
