Pudina Powder

Pudina Powder

Mint is one those greens that I simply cannot live without. I love using fresh mint leaves for my cuppa tea or Mango Mint Iced Tea. But, there are times when fresh mint is just not available.

During such days, Dry Mint Powder saves my day! Wanting to make Pudina Laccha Paratha out of the blue? Rely on a jarful of Homemade Dry Mint Powder then.

Dry Mint Powder is good for health as it bolsters smooth digestion. In the ancient times, this powder was also used to clean and whiten the teeth. Moreover, it also cured stomach ache and chest pain.

So, do keep this powder handy to meet your #healthgoals. I remember my mom and dad sitting on the floor with large sheets of newspaper spread in front of them picking leaves from the bunches of mint which would eventually be dried and ground to make Dried Mint Powder.

This dried mint powder was then stored in a small glass jar and when the mint went off the market during summers, the powder compensated for its disappearance. When I got married, the bunches of mint that were brought home doubled and my share was kept safe till I visited my parents or they came over.

More Detail

  • Mint is the name for over a dozen plant species, including peppermint and spearmint, that belong to the genus Mentha.

    These plants are particularly known for the cooling sensation they impart. They can be added to foods in both fresh and dried forms.

    Mint is a popular ingredient in several foods and beverages, ranging from teas and alcoholic drinks to sauces, salads and desserts.

    While eating the plant offers some health benefits, research shows that several of mint’s health benefits come from applying it to the skin, inhaling its aroma or taking it as a capsule.
