A recipe that is rich in iron, this chutney can be had as a side dish for idly, dosa, vada etc and at the same time, this can be mixed to hot rice and mint rice can be made. This helps in easy digestion too. This helps in hair growth too, as it is rich in iron. It had been the most favourite side dish for my daughter and she is so happy to take it to school along with idly or chappati or even curd rice.

Mint Leaves - From 2 bunches
Red Chillies - 4 to 5
Salt - To taste
Tamrind - Small piece
Bengal Gram Dal - 1/4 cup
Urad Dal - 1/4 cup
Asafodeita - 1 pinch
Oil - 1 tsp

In a kadai, heat oil and fry bengal gram, urad dal and red chillies in the same order. Add the tamrind and salt too when the dals become golden brown. Remove from flame and spread it on a flat plate or bowl; wash and add the mint leaves to the kadai and saute it in low flame for a few seconds. Remove from flame. Let every thing cool and grind along with asafodeita.
