*Protects against Cancer
MINT.......
*Relieves indigestion
*Fights aches and pains
*Gives a glowing, acne-free skin
*Fights oral infections
*Relieves cold and cough
*Prevents allergies and asthma
*Fights morning sickness in  pregnant women
So, inspired by Vidya @traditionallymodernfood on Instagram, I have created this recipe, wherein I have combined the 2 healthy  Tomato & Mint  and concocted this 3-in-1 recipe!!!
This can be used as a side for Idlis, dosas and rotis, stuffed parathas
This can be spread on toasted bread slices, or used as a sandwich spread before keeping the filling
This can be mixed with rice and eaten too.
This can be refrigerated and used for 2-3 weeks.


Ingredients
Tomatoes - 4, medium sized
Mint leaves - a handful
Hing powder - 1/2 tso
Chilli powder - 1 1/4 tsps
Jaggery - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

For seasoning
Gingely oil - 3-4 tbsps
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds
 1 tsp

Recipe cuisine: South indian; Category: Pickle/preserve/side
Prep time: 5 mts; Cooking time: 3-4 mts

Yields a small bowl

Load the blender jar with chopped tomatoes, mint leaves, chilli powder, hing powder, jaggery and salt to taste and grind to a smooth paste


Heat pressure pan with oil, season turmeric and mustard seeds


After the mustard seeds splutter, switch off and add the ground paste otherwise it will splash on your hands. Then switch on and cook for 2-3 whistles


Let the pressure release naturally, then this is how it looks!!! OMG!! the whole house is wafting with this wonderful aroma!!


Enjoy!!!


Variations
1.Plain tomatoes can be made into a thokku, Just omit mint leaves, and after opening the cooker, add some roasted methi powder.
2. Mint leaves can be replaced by coriander leaves too
