Pudina (Mint) Chutney

Pudina (Mint) Chutney is a very flavorful chutney. It is one of our favorite chutney. This is my own recipe. I often make it as an accompaniment to rava idli and that is one of the best combination so far!!

In the past few months, mint has become one of our favorite herb and I have been using it a lot. We love the flavor. I am trying to use it more in our diet, as it is very healthy.
I have added few mint leaves (as I like the mild flavor. You are most welcome to increase the amount of mint leaves, to make the flavor more intense). The few sprigs of cilantro, goes really well with mint. Try making this coconut based mint chutney and I am sure you all will love it. 

  • Pudina/ Mint leaves- 15
  • Dalia/Roasted Chickpeas/Hurgadle- 3 Tbsp
  • Grated Coconut, fresh/ frozen- 1/2 cup
  • Green Chilli- 2-3
  • Tamarind- A very small piece
  • Coriander leaves/Cilantro- 5-6 sprigs
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp


Grind all the above ingredients except oil and mustard seeds. Add little water while grinding. Don't grind  the chutney very smooth. Transfer it into a bowl. Adjust the consistency of the chutney using water (I made it medium thick). Then add seasoning.

For seasoning- Heat oil and add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, turn off the heat. Add this to the chutney and mix well. Pudina (Mint) Chutney is ready.

Serve it with Rava idli, dosa or any idli of your choice. Above measurement serves three people.
