Pudina pachadi – mint chutney – another everyday simple chutney recipe with mint leaves, peanuts, sesame seeds, and other spices. This chutney goes very well with hot rice and dollop of ghee. It will also be good for idly, dosa and roti as well.

This is again my Mom’s recipe 🙂 By this time, you might know how much I love chutneys 🙂 There are many more chutney recipes which I have to add to this blog. I have grown up eating chutney with almost every vegetable. And I find chutney as an easy way to include nuts and seeds like peanuts, sesame seeds, coconut etc., along with veggies in the day to day meals. Chutney or pachadi with leafy veggies make them a tasty and interesting way to include leafy greens.

Chutneys are easy to make and a good option for busy weekdays. Generally, we make little extra and have it with tiffins as well as with rice. And all chutneys stores well for a couple of days in the refrigerator. Due to busy day to day life chores, it’s not easy for everyone to make every meal from scratch. In those cases, these chutneys or gunpowders are life saviors. I use chutneys and gunpowders as a spread for roti or dosa for my daughter’s lunch box. We don’t eat bread on regular basis, but these will be good as a sandwich spread as well.
