PUDINA CHUTNEY| MINT CHUTNEY RECIPE|SIDE DISH FOR IDLI /DOSA

NO ONION NO GARLIC RECIPE

Though making of Idli | dosa is an easyone for breakfast or dinner , making a side dish for idli / dosa is always a task for me and most of time i end up making Onion tomato chutney and coconut chutney( recipe coming soon)  and sometimes will make Tiffin Sambar too. My daughte Varsha loves to try different varieties of chutney for idli | dosa and so i tried pudina chutney last week as i had a big bunch of mint leaves after my visit to the Indian market here.

We had this pudina chutney with dosa and the recipe is quite simple and easy to make too.

NOTE:

  1. Always ensure that the channa dal is roasted very well, as after adding the rest of the ingredients it won’t get roasted.
  2. Do not over cook or saute the mint leaves. It may give a bitter taste.
