Method for Mint Chutney

  1. To make Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney), first take one fresh bunch of mint leaves. You will know the leaves are fresh when they are bright green in color and not yellow.
  2. Pick the leaves from the stems and discard the stems.
  3. Wash the leaves thoroughly to remove any dirt and dust that might be on them.This is a very important step as the leaves might have a lot of dirt on them.

  4. Roughly chop the leaves to make it easier for blending. We will need around 2 cups of chopped mint leaves. Since this is a Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney), we are going to use more mint and less coriander. Mint has many health benefits that makes it beneficial for health.
  5. Now take the coriander.
  6. Separate the leaves and the stems. We are only going to use the leaves and the soft stems.
  7. Rinse the coriander leaves in water to remove any dirt that might be stuck to them.
  8. Roughly chop the leaves for the Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney). Keep aside.
  9. Put the mint leaves in a mixer jar.
  10. Then add the coriander leaves.
  11. Now add the onions. This recipe calls for 3/4 cup sliced onions. You will get this quantity by cutting 2 medium onions. 

  12. Now add the lemon juice. Lemon juice will not only maintain the color of the Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney) but also give it a zesty taste that compliments mint very well.
  13. Add the sugar to balance the flavor of the lemon. You can reduce the amount of sugar if you do not want a slight sweet taste to the Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney).
  14. Now add the roughly chopped greeen chillies.
  15. Finally add salt to taste.
  16. Add 1/4 cup water so that it is easily blended.
  17. Blend into a smooth paste. You will have to stir and scrape the sides of the blender once or twice in between to get a smooth paste.
