Pudina ki Chutney Recipe with step by step pictures

Pudina ki chutney is a condiment prepared using fresh mint leaves, combined with onions, zinged with lemon juice, and spiced with green chilies. Pudina chutney recipe is very simple and easy to make like most of the chutney recipes. Further, it does not call for many ingredients because the flavor of fresh mint has been highlighted. Whenever I made pudina ki chutney, it would make it in combination with some coriander leaves. As in half proportion of coriander leaves and half mint leaves. However, recently when I was short of fresh coriander leaves and had a large bunch of mint leaves; I made pudina ki chutney with pudina only. And it tasted so good. The tricky part about pudina chutney is that it tends to get dark easily. Therefore I like to make it and immediately fill it in the ice trays and freeze it. Whenever I want to serve it, I just take out one or two cubes of it and thaw the same and use it. Pudina ki chutney really complements a plate of dal and rice or a plate of samosa or pakoras, etc. Do try it; I am sure you will love it.

Ingredients for Pudina ki Chutney Recipe

Fresh Mint Leaves: A large bunch of mint has been used in the pudina ki chutney recipe. Well, it is very important to use fresh and organic mint to make the chutney. My mother would always prefer “desi pudina” for her chutney recipes. It is more tender and pungent. Whatever mint you have, make sure to wash it thoroughly. I never discard the tender stems of mint or even coriander for that matter. However, if the stems are too old or tough, you will have to discard the same.

Onions: I have always seen my mother adding onions to the chutneys, be it dhaniya ki chutney or pudina ki chutney recipe. And I have always loved its effect. It gives a perfect color to the chutney and enhances its taste a lot. You can skip the onions from pudina chutney recipe if you want a no onion pudina chutney recipe.

Green Chilies: You can adjust the number of green chilies depending on how hot you want the chutney to be.

Lemon Juice: Although this is my favorite ingredient to add tanginess. If you do not have lemon juice, you can add tamarind water instead.

Other ingredients: I have used black salt to season the chutney. You can add garlic, ginger, etc. to flavor pudina ki chutney.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
