Blogging Marathon # 8 - Condiments - Pudhina Chutney

Today is Condiment Day. Indian Cuisine, especially South Indian cuisine has the maximum number of condiments to be listed, starting from podis, thogayals, chutneys, vadam , appalams , etc.
I am posting an incredibly tasty and easy breezy chutney which you can have it mixed with rice, or as a sidedish. This chutney can also be used as a spread on Chapatis or Breads, when you make rolls or sandwich. I like to mix it with rice along with a tinge of ghee and have with homemade vathal. Reminds me I do have three varieties of Vathal that I have to post and send it to Srivalli's Condiment Mela.

1. Pudhina - a small bunch
2. Coriander leaves - a small bunch
3. Coconut - 1/4 cup
4. Bengal Gram dal - 1/4 cup
5. Red chillies - 1
6. Green Chillies - 3
7. Tamarind - a small ball (depends on the level of tanginess you want)
8. Salt - to taste

1. Saute the ingredients one by one seperately and keep aside
2. In a blender add the ingredients and grind to make a coarse paste
3. Do not add water as it might spoil the consistency
4. Check for the salt and serve with the dish of your choice

Now was'nt I right in saying it is a breezy dish. Do try it and let me know how you liked it.
