Mint Dip

#MintDip #MintChutney : #Mint [ #Pudhina ] is generally included in a dish for its irresistible aroma and flavor. It is good for digestion and an anti oxidant.
This is a simple but tasty #dip [ #chutney ] usually served along with tandoori dishes in restaurants. Mint dip goes well with all types of savory items and also with tiffin items.
I have included fried grams to get the smooth texture and also to add volume to the dip. Curd has been added to make it creamy.
Lemon juice has also been added to make the dip little bit tangy.
