Red Pudina/Mint Chutney

Mint chutney is probably one of the most famous chutneys in north India. Pudina/Mint chutney is very
aromatic, refreshing, tangy and cooling. I also learned this recipe from my father. Usually people make green mint chutney, but personally I like this red chutney with my meal whether it is lunch or dinner.
