In summer, there is always plentiful of mint leaves in my back garden. I use the mint leaves by preparing chutneys or making pulao. Another dish I make out of mint is mint rice, a mint flavoured rice in a south Indian style. This is good and easy to pack for lunches for busy moms. Mint rice is prepared with fresh mint leaves chutney and then tempering along with a dash of lime or lemon juice in the end. The lime/lemon juice brings out more flavour and taste to the mint rice.
