you can make the same recipe with coriander leaves replacing the mint leaves or a mix of both. i sometimes add mint and sometimes coriander leaves while making this mint coconut chutney variety. another south indian variety of pudina chutney that i make is pudina thogayal. this is a thick chutney that is served with steamed rice or a rice-based dish.

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 green coconut chutney or basil coconut chutney.
