Pudina pachadi Recipe with step by step photos. This pudina chutney with coconut is made with fresh mint leaves, coconut and spices. This pudina pachadi is one more variation of using fresh herbs while making chutney varieties. It goes well with South Indian snacks like idli, dosa, vada, bonda or uttapam. You can also have it with upma, rava dosa, pakoda, rava idli or sandwich.

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.

I had made this mint coconut chutney to go with rava dosa. It is best to consume the chutney as soon as it is made. Leftover can be refrigerated and consumed within a day.

You can vary the amount of mint leaves as per your liking. To give more green color add more mint leaves. It will also increase the mint flavors in the pachadi.
