Peppermint Chutney/ Pudina Chammanthi

This chammanthi is another favorite of mine, the taste of it I can't describe in words. I prefer to have this as a side for rice and dosa, the tangy, spicy and minty taste is just awesome. I learnt to make this from my mom and aunt, they usually grind this using ammi kallu (grinding stone). Now let's get to the recipe;


2 cups of peppermint leaves
1 cup of grated coconut
A small piece of ginger
5 pcs of dried red chili
1 tbsp of tamarind paste
4 garlic pods
3 shallots
Salt to taste

Dry roast peppermint leaves, grated coconut, ginger, garlic, red chili and shallot until fragrant DO NOT BURN and let it cool for a while.

Then take all the above ingredients and grind using a ammi kallu or dry blend without adding any water, only if necessary just sprinkle some water while grinding. For step by step pictorial on chammanthi click here.

Now our Pudina Chammanthi is ready to be served. Do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
