Mint & Cilantro Chutney (புதினா கொத்தமல்லி துவையல் )

Another win ,this time its a food coupon from which is shared by my best co-blogger MeenaKumar of Elephants and coconut trees.Thanks meena for providing me the coupons.

Mint is rich in carotenes and vitamin C. Mint helps in improving digestion and also improves the immune system overall. Cilantro reduces stomach indigestion problems and has anti inflammatory capacities and is benificial for arthitis patients.
I often include mint and coriander in our diet in form of chutney, include in rice and use them as garnish.
