                          My MIL makes this chutney sometimes when she have mint leaves at home. She make the best Idlies in the world according to me. Before marriage I used to hate eating idlies,my mom makes me dosas or idly upma as I don't like Idly.She too makes soft idlies,then too I started liking idly only after eating my MIL’s Idly… !
                         Mint chutney,well,I am not a big fan of,but for a change, I would like to make and enjoy with soft idlies and dosas. Sometimes our taste changes with time…Like wise whatever I used to hate before,am liking now a days and I am wanting change in my regular menu…
