Pudhina is Mint leaf. High in iron and vitamins is good for digestion. Had lots of pudhina at home. Planned to make this Gojju . The taste was marvellous. The flavours blended very well and needless to say the guests loved it. This Gojju goes well with Adai, Pongal, Dosai, Sevai, Upma and Curd Rice. Good to serve with snacks like Bajji , Bonda and Vadai
