Mint Chutney for Dosa - Pudina Coconut Chutney Recipe

Mint chutney is a popular chutney or dip in Indian cuisine that has many variations  It's a great green chutney with serve with Indian snacks. I bought a mint plant the other day and its growing like a wild bush in its small pot. To use up some of the fresh and insanely flavourful leaves, I made a mint coconut chutney to go with wheat dosas
