Pudina chutney , with it's distinctive taste & smell is an all time favorite.
This refreshing , green chutney is a good dipping sauce as well as a spread.
It is customary to serve snacks like samosas & kachories with this spicy dip.
Pudina is better known as a digestive & After Eight Mints are well known.
It makes a delicious spread for sandwiches. Addition of tomato slices, cucumber slices & cheese to this sandwich make a filling, tasty meal. It is very easy to grow this herb in pots as they grow wildly & does not call for any care.
