Pudina Chutney – Mint Chutney

Pudina Chutney - Mint Chutney

A versatile Pudina Chutney – Mint Chutney which accompanies nearly all the Indian savory dishes. A very flavorful and tasty Indian dip prepared by combining mint and cilantro along with Indian spices. This chutney goes very well with Alu bondas, chaats and Indian street food recipes.

Mint in any form is one of my favorite ingredients and a must- have in my pantry. In summers when we have crisp sunlight – I buy mint in bulk, dry it, crush it and store it for future use. I use dried mints to flavor up my raitas, savory foods, pulaos, paranthas and much more.

Some people find mint too bitter in taste. It’s not the mint which is bitter it’s the stem which has a strong bitter taste, omit those while making this chutney. Adding cilantro leaves to mint leaves balances that bitterness in this chutney. Also adding citrus juice like lemon juice or adding acidic juices like tomatoes can make a difference to this chutney. In the recipe below I have used a medium size tomato.

      Hello Jaya,

      Thanks for stopping by! All I can suggest is add some Red chili powder and garlic paste to bring flavor to the store bought chutney. Hope that helps! If you have Cilantro available in your nearby stores maybe next time you can give Cilantro chutney a try.

      Thanks!
      Ruchi
