Pudina Chutney – Mint Pesto

Pudina aka Fudina (Mint) – the summer’s coolest herb. Growing mint is easy—sometimes too easy. Learn to plant, grow, and control mint in your garden. Growing mint in containers is usually your best bet.
Mint Chutney is deliciously spicy condiment prepared from fresh mint leaves, coriander leaves, ginger and garlic. I also add fresh garlic chives if I have some in my garden and to increase the quantity of chutney for the crowd, I add Green Bell Pepper as well. Green peas can be used as well. This chutney freezes well.
