When I was in Chennai, the last day before we left to Singapore, some how we found time to go to Phoenix Market city (Phoenix mall). After roaming and shopping, we felt like having a snack break and found the restaurant “Namma Veedu Vasantha bhavan” there and thought of giving it a try. Aj had dosa and as usual he only had it with sambar and left all the 3 chutneys. I just tasted the green chutney and the taste and flavour was so familiar to me and Vj felt the same. But I could not instantly recollect it what it is. Then I recognised that it is similar to ridge gourd gravy I make. So before I left the restaurant, I asked one of the person in their kitchen and to my surprise he said its ‘Mint chutney’. But still I wanted to try my version of ridge gourd chutney and did it last month for idli. It was really a good accompaniment for idli dosa. And I was happy that I got a new side dish for idli, dosa. So you can try as well, for a change and make everyone keep guessing what kind of chutney it is.
Serve with hot idli or roast ghee dosa, tastes great and delicious, more over, you are consuming the veggie!
