hi aarthi.. I did this chutney few days before but i could not be able to grind smootly coz of the stem. So i could not be able to eat that chutney. From this experiment, i came to a conclusion that i should remove the stem from the leaves.. What about u ? Pls suggest ..

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

sitalekshmi..If you have a good blender you can even make a fine paste of the stalks too..BUt you can use the leaves alone for getting smooth paste..
