Podina-Kobbari Chutney (Mint-coconut Chutney)

Mint is one of my favorites. I often make this spicy, flavorful chutney with mint and fresh coconut, to go with dosa or rice.  Try this refreshing and yummy chutney and I assure you will love it.

Peppermint Leaves on Foodista
One podina bunch -leaves separated
1 fresh coconut cubed
lemon size ball of tamarind deseeded
1 cup water
for Tempering:
2 tbsp oil
2 tbs chana daal
1 tbsp urad daal
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin
3 whole dry red chillies
1 tsp turmeric

Dry roast the washed and dried Podina leaves in a pan  and keep aside. Heat oil in  another pan and add the chana, daal urad daal, cumin, mustard seeds. As the seeds start to splutter add turmeric and red chillies. Let them slightly brown and turn off the flame.
Grind together the roasted podina leaves and coconut and tamarind and tempering together with enough water to a paste consistency in a blender. Chutney is now ready to seve with.

Serve as an accompaniment with dosa, vada or rice
