This is my mom's secret mint chutney recipe. This is one of my absolute favorite recipe. This thogayal is a thickish one, taste great when mixed with hot rice or served with dosa or idli. This taste sweet and spicy at the same time. Last week she made this and i stood beside the stove and clicked the pics.
So here you go to the recipe.
