    1. in this recipe, curd add a lot of flavor. so for this particular chutney recipe curd cannot be substituted. if you use lemon juice or amchur powder, the taste changes a lot and it will be like a regular mint chutney.

  12. hi, just want to know, for how long can we store this chutney? is it possible to make this in large quantity and store for a while?

    1. sneha, i suggest to consume the pudina chutney in 1-2 day time, if kept refrigerated. the reason being curd is added to the mint chutney preparation so it will get spoilt quickly.

  13. Hi, this is the first time I visited ur site, I was searching for pudina chutney for long time and impressed with ur recipe and comments u got… 🙂 so I tried it and to my surprise it was awesome and got the restaurant taste too….

  14. I have starting to like this site too much, mostly due to the style of blogging ….simple step wise and mostly the Hindi names of the spices are mentioned right there.
    Thanks for the beautiful work

  15. Just made this. Had no rock salt and didn’t follow the exact measurements, but kept adjusting to my taste and it came out perfect, like a chutney from any good kebab place. Yum 🙂


  16. Hi,

  17. hi

  18. The chutni was exactly the way we have in the restaurants. It was so simple that even my son (16yrs) could make it on his own……Thankyou

  19. I am a Parsi but a vegetarian one and I am a hopeless cook especially since the family usually cooks non-veg food which is good … I believe. Do you think you could give some Parsi veg. food recipes? Am interested in Dhan Dal Patia … Patia to be precise. I have had such terrific veg Patia in restaurants and even weddings but just don’t know how they do it.

    So try and give me a veg Patia recipe. Thank you

    1. i will try to post the vegetarian parsi recipes including dhan dal patia… in fact amongst the parsi recipes, dhansak and the parsi custard are my favorites.

      1. Hey Thanks ever so much. Looking forward to the Patia. What about Parsi Stew? Am I pushing you a bit too much!!!!

        1. not at all mani. in fact the patia, i am still wondering which veggie to substitute for fish. have zeroed in two veggies but still to try out the patia at home. for the stew, will have to look out for the veg substitutes.

  20. I really look forward to your recipes! Everything is so appealing, and I’m discovering some wonderful new spices and traditions. I can’t wait to try this recipe. The peppercorn addition is unexpected and fun. Wonderful site! Thank you.

    1. thanks debra for the inspiring comment. it touched my heart.

      i love cooking and it is a meditation for me. and all these positive comments makes me feel to share more of my creativity and love for cooking.
