Pudina Chutney - Punjab Indian Recipe

In the Punjab and Kerala region of India, they make a delicious chutney with pudina (mint).


1 bunch pudina (mint)
2 dry red chilies
1 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp urad daal
1 piece dry tamarind
1 tsp heeng
1 tsp oil
1 tsp of salt

Wash and then chop the pudina (mint). In a pan heat the oil. Add 1 tsp of urad dal. Then add the chilies. Cook for two minutes. In the same pan add the mint and carefully cookuntil it changes color. Once it is cooked it shrinks to half the original quantity, let it cool. Add the tamarind, sugar, hing & grind it to a fine paste. Do the seasoning with the other tsp of urad dal, mustard seeds in a tsp of oil.
