Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney)

This chutney is not usually on a Maharastrian thali. You generally see cilantro chutney. Pudina chutney may be included for special occasions. Pudina or mint leaves have a very refreshing taste.

This chutney takes only a few minutes to make with a blender. I remember when I was a child the maid used to grind the chutney using a grinding stone. Most homes including mine do not have a grinding stone anymore.

You will need
1 big bunch of cilantro
1 small handful of pudina (mint) leaves
2 tbsp. dry roasted peanuts
salt to taste

Grind all the ingredients together in a blender to form a thick paste with as little water as your blender will allow.
