Pudina (mint) Chutney

Pudina Chutney is one of the best accompaniment for idli, dosa, paniyaram or chapathi. My mother taught me how to make this recipe and her recipe doesn't include roasted channa dal. I have added this ingredient into my recipe, because it gives good texture.


1 Bunch of Pudina (Mint)
1 Cup Grated coconut
1/2 cup Roasted Channa dal (Hurikadale)
3 Cloves of Garlic
4 Green Chilies
Small piece of Tamarind
2 tsp Oil

For tampering - 

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Urad dal
2 Red chilies
1 strand of Curry leaves


  • Heat Oil in a pan, add garlic, green chili and pudina. Saute for 2- 3 minutes. And then add tamarind. Fry for a minute

  • Using a blender, make a smooth paste of coconut, roasted channa dal and fried ingredients. Adjust salt as per taste

  • For tampering -  heat 2 tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, urad dal, red chilies and curry leaves. Pour the contents to pudina chutney. Mix well
  • Best combination with Doda, idli and chapathi
