Tomato Mint Chutney / Pudina chutney / mint chutney – is a tasty chutney which can be served as a side dish for rice. This can also be served along with dosa. I have already shared many chutney recipes and this is one more chutney recipe that goes into my collection. I love the mint flavor and make mint chutney very often, but with coconut. Recently when my health condition was very weak, one of my neighbor gave me this recipe. It was an easy recipe and I made it in bulk and stored it in refrigerator in different containers. It was a real savior for me, as I didn’t have to make any other side dish. I had it with curd rice and chutney. I haven’t added tamarind here, but if you want little more punch to your dish, add a small pinch of tamarind while grinding. Now to the recipe..
