MINT CHUTNEY/DIP

Yum
Hi friends, Have a nice week ahead... Today am sharing a spicy and healthy dip which is MINT CHUTNEY...



Little about Mint Chutney
Usually everyone will make the chutney with some variation according to the regional and individual too... So here is the my version of Mint chutney which is very flavorful and greeny... Which is greeny means its healthy too, isn't? I got a big bunch of mint leaves, so decided to do the chutney... Here I won't add onion, garlic and coconut which is purely mint chutney without any other veggies... Mint chutney will suitable for idli, dosa even chapathis too... It is mostly used in chat items as a dip.
