    Hello ILites,

    How do you all manage to get/use mint leaves during winter months.

    I live in the North-East and used to get them regularly during summer. Now being winter, I get them very rarely. This week I managed to get a big bunch. Is there a way to store them, as a sauce or paste (atleast for the next 2 months)....so that I can use them in future for biryanis, pulaos etc...

    Thanks!

    Hi Goodwill,

    You can buy dried mint leaves in indian store.. u cant use that like fresh ones but it will give nice flavor for briyani and pulao .. i use to buy that when fresh leaves not available.

    Hope this helps

    You can puree the leaves and then freeze them in an ice cube tray, bag and store in freezer. Last summer I made mint coriander chutney and froze that in containers.
