Mint Tea

Mint Tea

Last year my Gujarati housekeeper noticed me stocking fresh mint leaves. She was curious as how we use it in our South Indian cooking. I explained to her my favorite pudhina thogayal, mint chutney that’s served with idlies. In exchange she provided me this easy and tasty mint tea. It was very new to me and my family has been enjoying it since then.
