Pudina Thogayal Recipe(without Coconut) | Idly Dosa Side Dish Recipes

pudina thogayal
Pudina(Mint) Thogayal recipe, is a very quick and easy to make which goes very well with Idili and Dosas.  Pudina(Mint) has a fragrant smell which everyone loves to have. Pudina(Mint) leaves are beneficial in many health related issues also. I used to make this frequently at home.
I make this Mint/Pudina thogayal slightly different from the other thogayal  that I make usually.I will temper the mustard seeds,urad dal and curry leaves in oil and then add it while grinding the mint leaves.This gives extra fragrance to the chutney.We can refrigerate this up to a week by grinding it very thick without much water and coconut.
Whenever am sick i will make this thogayal and have it with and rasam.we can also mix this thogayal with steamed rice and pack this for kids lunch box.Sure they will love this thogayal rice.
