    Default fresh mint recipes

    mint isnt a native here, but ive found a place to buy fresh cut leaves instead of relying on a plant tht struggles to survive when its too wet ths season here. that said, my few grams of mint leaves is so precious i'm looking for (again) simple recipes i can do soon before the leaves wilt n be wasted-). any u have tried aside from teas?

    Hmmm. You can add it to salads

    Found a website that suggests making ice cubes with mint leaves in them

    Some cultures add it to savoury food. I found a recipe, but the website made my browser crash if you don't get any tips here, try googling fresh peppermint recipes or something

    Mint chutney is awesome, kind of like a dipping sauce/spread you can use for fried breads and things...

    not to mention it also makes your mouth feel like you just gargled with mouthwash FRESH!

    I eat it with fried flat breads/ with rice flour type cakes (what we call here idli)

    Idli Recipes and Dosa Recipes with Step By Step Photos

    Mint Chutney Recipe - Easy to Make Spicy Indian Mint Leaves Chutney

    The healthier choice is the idli btw b/c you just steam it no oil involved...but the dosa I recommend b/c the oil makes it taste great and also gives it a "potato chip" type crunch....my personal fav is dosa.... Hope you try it out!

    Peppermint has a bite to it, hence why it's called "pepper"mint. Wintergreen is really mild, not very minty. And spearmint is just.. gross.. lol
