Garlic & Mint Chutney

A wonderful chutney suits prefectly to serve along with crispy dosas or soft idlies, i prepared this chutney simply by sauting mint leaves,garlic along with coriander seeds,dry red chillies and tamarind and grinded as this flavourful chutney,for my surprise this green chutney tastes super delicious,spicy and flavourful..We enjoyed having this chutney with some crispy dosas for our dinner and we relished it..Definitely a quick chutney tastes simply delicious also needless to say the health benefits of mint leaves and garlic cloves, personally i felt its quite a best way to sneak garlic cloves by making this sort of simple and quick chutneys..

1cup Mint leaves
20nos Garlic cloves
1tbsp Coriander seeds
5nos Dry red chillies
1no Tamarind (blueberry size)
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
Few curry leaves

Heat few drops of oil, roast the coriander seeds,dry red chillies,tamarind until they get well roasted,keep aside..Sauté the garlic cloves until they turn brown and add the mint leaves to the garlic cloves and stir until they shrinks..

Grind the roasted spices,garlic cloves,mint leaves along with salt and enough water in a mixie as a bit coarse paste,meanwhile heat enough oil,let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal and curry leaves, add this tempered spices to the grounded chutney and enjoy as side dish with dosas or idlis..
