This is one of the accompanying side dishes for a Malabar Biriyani . Biriyani is traditionally served with Raita/Onion -Tomato Salad with curd,Pudhina Chutney ,Pickle(lemon or dates& beetroot) , Pappad and a Boiled egg . It is usually followed by a slice of Pineapple and a Sulaimani Chai (Light Black tea with Lemon and sugar) which is believed to aid digestion .
This chutney goes well on a vegetable sandwich also and can be had with plain rice as well.

  2. Mint leaves - a small bunch (around 20 leaves)
  3. shallot - 1
  4. Green chillies - 5
  5. Lemon juice - 1 squeeze

Method:
Add all the ingredients into a blender/food processor and grind to a semi smooth paste without adding water.
