Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney)

Mint Chutney is a most popular chutney out of all in Indian cuisine.  I love pudina chutney so much that I can eat it with anything and everything, but it has to be fresh. There is something about the fresh which gives this chutney such a crisp flavor of mint and cilantro.  Also love to mix it in the yogurt and serve as a dip with Kebabs and stuff.  Everyone has a different way of making it.  Today I want to share my style of mint chutney. Make sure you try it and tell me how you like it….While writing this post I can just smell the freshness of the mint…

In a blender, put the sliced onion and along with the green chilies and blend it.  Then add the mint leaves, cilantro along with the salt, red chili powder, sugar and tamarind juice and blend it thoroughly. If you don't have the tamarind juice then you can use the dates & tamarind chutney about 2 tsps, just omit the sugar.

Once everything is blended together, your chutney is ready.  Do a taste test for salt, heat and sourness.  Add if anything is needed and just give it a quick blend.
