Usually mint is used for seasoning, adding flavor to rasam, preparing chutneys and health drinks etc. For the first time i happen to eat mint rice in my mother in law’s house.The dish was delicious and I had it with Onion raitha, pappad.It might be a known dish for many but for me it was new.She(my mother in law)had prepared it without using ginger,garlic,coriander leaves.Generally mint is sweeter but to make it little more spicy I have added them. It turned out really well.Also it didn’t take much time for preparation. It has great medicinal values too. Even in Ayurveda medicinal treatment mint is used for balancing Pitta.
