Here we share with you a quick 10 minute recipe to make a cup of mint (pudhina) chutney.

Preparation Time- 10 minutes

Cooking time- 10 minutes

IngredientsQuantity
Finely chopped home grown mint leaves2 cup

Steps To Make Mint Chutney

1. Pluck a fresh bunch of mint leaves. ‘Fresh’ is important for the chutney to taste better and sharper.

We recommend the use of home grown mint leaves over buying a bunch from the market, where you cannot keep a trail of its contamination and whether or not it is naturally fresh or made to ‘look fresh’ artificially. Who knows what chemicals have been spewed on it before it reached your hands! Mint chutney made from store bought mint is often missing in richness of flavor and freshness.

Instead of using store-brought mint leaves, you can simply grow them, as you can grow these 24 other aromatic herbs and veggies, inside your home with the help of Urban Kisaan’s slick, compact and aesthetically pleasing Hydroponic sets that do not require soil. It simply relies on nutrient water solution and light to give you fresh, nutritious, sprightly herbs, fruits and veggies to make salads, condiments, smoothies or sandwiches. Grown right in the comfort of your house, you can sit back and enjoy recipes made from juicy, crunchy herb, A-safe for consumption, chemical free and without having to go through the mess of tilling and leveling the soil.

Steps To Make Mint Chutney

2. Separate the leaves from the mint stems.

3. You can wash the mint leaves if you want for your own satisfaction, but if they have grown indoors, they may not need much washing.

4. Chop and collect about 2 cups of mint leaves.

5. Take coriander. Separate the leaves and soft stems. Chop them and set them aside.

6. Take the mint leaves and put in in a mixing jar. Add chopped coriander to it.

7. Slice 2 medium sized onions to add to the mix.

8. Squeeze the lemon juice over the contents of the mixer. (Mouth watering, isn’t it?)

9. Add brown sugar to the mix. If you want it less sweet and tangier to spicy, you can choose to put less sugar or no sugar at all.

10. Add the green chilies to the mix.

11. And now some salt to taste.

12. Add about a fourth cup of water for effortless blending.

13. All that you need to do now is blend it into a nice smooth paste.

14. Store the mint chutney in an air tight container in the fridge.
