Mint leaves Thuvaiyal (Pudina Thogayal):
Fresh mint leaves makes us fresh as well with its superb aroma and look. Mint leaves are used in many dishes for garnishing for the flavor that it gives to the dish. Pudina thogayal is from my grandma’s kitchen and we have this always in our fridge and use as a second side dish regularly.
We sometimes use this as a spread on chappathis while traveling, to make the meal tasty and quick to eat. Of course can also be used as a spread on the bread while making sandwich. Green in color, this attracts our taste buds much more than any other similar chutneys.
