Pudina Chtuney Recipe with coconut and tomato - Indian Mint chutney recipe - Pudina thogayal

Pudina Chtuney Recipe with coconut and tomato - Indian Mint chutney recipe  - Pudina thogayal:

I was planning to make pudhina chutney for idli and dosa in hotel style for a long time. Since my hubby did not like mint flavor at all, I did not try it. But last week I prepared mint chutney with coconut and tomato along with idli sambar for idli so that my hubby can have idli with sambar. The pudina thogayal served in hotels do not have pudina flavor more dominating. The secret is adding coconut and tomato to the thogayal. Even my hubby who do not like mint flavor had it. Last time I have posted kothamalli chutney which is also a super hit.

Pudhina chutney recipe I have given here is made with coconut and tomato. So, the mint flavor is not so dominating like plain pudina chutney. So, even if you do not like plain pudina chutney, you can try this recipe. I would say the mint chutney version I have given here is perfect for serving with idli and dosa. Plain pudina chutney is perfect for rice.
