Tomato Mint Chutney/Thakkali Pudina Chutney




As my family likes the mint flavor,I try to make different varieties of chutney out of mint.One such try was this mint chutney and it pairs very well with idly and dosa.Also its a great spread for bread to make sandwiches.

This is a simple,easy to make chutney and need only 20 minutes for the entire process.Addition of urad dhal and channa dhal gives a nice creamy texture to the chutney.

Chutney is very creamy and love such chutneys which can be used as spreads as well.

Have never tried this combination, sounds super! Love the chutney served in a coconut shell, lovely...

I love this combination very much as much as like tomato coriander combo in chutneys, cute presentation with coconut shell.

I love mint and this combination is very tempting.

Mint is one of my fav and I use it regularly in making chutney. This version with dals and tomatoes sounds absolutely yum..

I really like the idea of this chutney - just all the flavors you put into it is one I really want to try!

Flavorful chutney and the subtle green color makes me drool. As you mentioned this would be a great spread as well. Hmmm paneer + bread + this chutney = food heaven only
