    We do pudhina chutney in 2 different ways

    1. Grind coconut,pudhina, green chilli and salt with enough water and temper with mustard,split urad dhal, asafoetida and curry leaves...Add very few mint leaves, so that color remains very light (similar to pista ice-cream..the more you add the taste and color differs)..Just tempering no cooking @ all :cheers

    2. Heat oil ...Saute chopped onions(1 big)..Next saute chopped tomatoes(2 medium)...next add a handfull of mint leaves and a small piece of tamaring and saute till the mint leaves shrink well..Add salt and grind...This can be tempered with mustard and urad dhal or avoid tempering

    hello

    pudhina/mint or corriander
    tastes funny
    sometimes bitter
    when ground too fine
    do try out like this

    (i have posted this sometime back but cant find the thread so am posting again)

    hello


    Power cuts and excellent chutneys…..


    What if you have the ingredients all ready for making chutney and half way through grinding there is power cut?…and the chutney cannot be made in the usual way?
    Here is a splendid way to make excellent chutneys when there is a power cut halfway through…

    No no no going back to ammi stones or olden days..!...
    Try grinding these chutneys the way I say and also the way it is usually done ..ground very fine…you will see the difference in taste..!


    Coconut chutney.
    Ingredients..
    Coconut scraping ..scraped very fine..one cup
    Dry chana or pottukadalai …two tablespoons
    (that you normally use for chutney).
    Green chillies….2 or three
    Coriander leaves chopped fine
    Salt to taste..
    Hing mustard and a little urud dhall

    Grind very fine pottukadalai salt and chillies
    Add coconut scraping and coriander leaves
    Sauté with mustard and a little urud dhall

    Coconut, mint, coriander chutney
    ingredients:
    coconut scraping ..very fine…one cup
    mint a handful washed and chopped fine
    coriander leaves washed and chopped fine
    green chillies 2 or 3
    salt to taste
    grind together coconut green chillies and salt..
    mix mint coriander and other ingredients well
    (sauté with mustard and a little urud dhall ..optional)
    Chutneys with just coriander leaves or mint or curryleaves is just as tasty as the mixed variety.

    ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

    Tomato onion chutney
    Tomato ..2
    Onion…1
    Curryleaves..5 or6
    Roasted red chillie…2 or 3
    Salt to taste
    With a little oil toss cut tomatoes cut onion red chillies add salt ..allow to cool
    Just run in the mixie for a min or too…very coarse not smooth..saute with mustard and finely chopped curry leaves..
    You can also add cut coriander leaves and mint leaves to the above chutney for a different taste.

    ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

    Tori or ridgegourd chutney
    Ingredients
    Ridge gourd 2
    Urud dhall 2 teaspoons
    Red chillies 2 or 3
    Hing
    Salt to taste
    Coriander leaves for topping
    Wash and remove hard ridge from the gourd ..it is ok if the peel is soft ..the chutney tastes good with it..so just remove the ridge..or lines that are hard.. cut to pieces
    With a little oil roast urud dhall red chillies ..cool and grind with salt and hind to fine powder..remove from mixie transfer to a bowl .
    Cook the ridge gourd in a little oil over low fire with a little salt..cover till it gets almost cooked allow to cool..and mash or mix with hand to make a coarse paste add this to the ground ingredients. top with finely chopped coriander leaves. Add a little water if the chutney is too dry or thick.

    ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc



    Chow chow chutney
    Ingredients
    Chow chow 2
    Tomato 1
    Onion 1
    Red chillies 2
    Green chilli 1

    In a little oil toss tomato pieces red and green chillies onion cut into pieces keep on low fire and when half cooked remove from fire cool..grind fine onion tomato mixture add the mashed chow chow mix well …top it with coriander leaves and sauté with mustard and urud dhall.
    This chutney can also be made only with chow chow peel (when the inside of chow chow is used for some other item like kootu)

    This is how I make my pudina chutney for idli.

    Fry pudina in 1/2 tsp oil till raw smell goes and grind it with green chillies, little ginger, tamarind, 1 or 2 tbsp coconut and 1 or 2 tsp of pottukadalai (chickpea). Season it with mustard and hing. Sometimes I do add raw onion and have it with adai. It tastes good.
