Multi Green Chutney

(pudina, curry leaves and corriander leaves)

This dish could be relished by all. But the speciality of this chutney is that this for pregnnat women.As I am pregnant she taught me this dish. She told that this chutney will make them feel hungry and also help to digest the food fast. Thats true!! I was not able to bear the temptation to relish this dish and I had this atleast 4 - 5 in a day with all different possiblities.. with rice, bread as a green sandwich, idli and dosa.. and the worse part is I kept on feeling hungry every one hour.. O such a good idea for those ppl who really want to add on a bit of weight!!

curry leaves - 1 cup
corriander leaves - 1 cup

My maid Uma Maheshwari. She helped me to cook this chutney. And this tasted too good with rice.
