Today let us learn another variation in Chutney category which suits best for  any South Indian breakfasts as well as snacks like vegetable cutlets and etc… We all know that chutney is a blend of specific ingredients which promises to accompany a dish thoroughly and enhance its taste. Be it Dosa or cutlets, pudina chutney gives you a very refreshing taste and the aroma of mint leaves is simply outstanding.

There are two variations in making pudina chutney. One is using coconut and the other is without. Without grated coconut chutney stays good for a while. May be for about 10 days in the refrigerator. But the ones with coconut chutney is recommended to be consumed as soon as possible. Though you try preserving them in the refrigerator for your use, they loose their taste for sure.
