I tried various food depend on weather, occasion or festivals. Today I have tried a quick and easy recipe. Name of it is Pudina(Mint) Aloo or Green Aloo. We can also say that Pudina wala Bataka nu Shaak in Gujarati.
Green Aloo is made up of mint, potatoes and some other ingredients like coriander leaves, black pepper, and cumin powder. You can add garlic also, but I don’t use garlic in it because I have made fasting pudina aloo.
The quick word comes in my mind when I see pudina is freshness. Mint had many medicinal properties and used as natural remedies. Mint is one of the oldest and popular herbs. There are many health benefits of Mint includes soothing the digestive tract, stomach ache, clear up skin disorders, acne, reduces irritate bowel syndromes, eliminating toxins from the body, whitening teeth and combat bad breath. It is the excellent blood cleanser.
I love the mint flavor in different dishes. Today I have served with Thepla with mint potato as regular dish. It is a good combination for travelling or outing. You can also try mint coriander chutney with it. Enjoy and share with your friends and family with this recipe.
