Pudina Thuvayal / Pudina chutney

Mint / Pudina is my favourite, next to Mint rice i often prepare this thuvayal. mint is best for digestion, when mint clubbed with ginger and made thuvayal, eaten with Rasam, then thats the best combination to please our digestive system and make you feel light. i always prepare this thuvayal the next day of preparing biryani.


Oil - 1/2 tbsp
Urad dal / ulundhu - 2 tsp
Dry Red chilli - 2
Ginger - 2' inch size
Tamarind - a small pinch
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Fresh Mint Leaves - 1 cup


In a pan, heat oil, add urad dal, roast it till it turns light golden colour, then add ginger and red chilli. saute it till they get roasted.

Now add Tamarind saute it for half a minute in slow flame. now add grated coconut and  saute till it gets lightly roasted. finally add fresh mint leaves and saute till they shrink.

Cool the sauteed ingredients and add little water and salt to taste and then grind them all together into a coarse paste.

Serve this thuvayal with rasam and appalam. which will turn out into a hearty and easy meal.
