Mint has been used for centuries to enhance dishes such as raita, chutneys, and salads. It adds a tangy and fresh taste to the food. In India, Mint is also called pudina. It has various medicinal properties, making it a popular ‘healing’ food in Ayurveda. Whether you use it topically or internally, Mint is a great way to promote wellness.
