mint coconut chutney

i sometimes add mint and sometimes coriander leaves while making coconut chutney. i had made this mint coconut chutney to go with rava dosa.

i have grown mint in my balcony garden so that i always have ample stock of mint for chutneys or for garnishing any dish or for making recipes like pudina rice or pudina paratha. mint is cooling and excellent for digestion. few more ideas to include herbs in coconut chutney are coriander coconut chutney or basil coconut chutney.
