This is another of staples in my kitchen. I have never bought ready-to-use dried mint leaves.
It is so easy to make that I would not like to buy it. Just like Roasted Cumin Seeds I keep this handy to add to buttermilk, raita, etc.
Thoroughly wash & clean the mint leaves from the stem and spread them out on a baking sheet.
After 2-3 days of Sun, you have dried mint leaves ready! Easy Peasy!!
I also use dried mint leaves/ flakes sometimes in pizza too. I know I am crazy!
How do you use dried mint leaves?
Sun-dried Mint Leaves | How To
Dried Mint leaves powder perks up yoghurts & dips very easily. It so easy to make that you would never buy it outside.
- 1 bunch – Mint Leaves, fresh
- Pluck the leaves only from the bunch, leaving behind the stem. Thoroughly rinse them.
- Now gently spread them on a baking sheet. Cover it with light weight cotton like muslin.
- Place it in hot sun for 2-3 days. The leaves will curl & darken.
- Now gently crush them into powder form using your hands. You can use them without crushing also.
Keep the leaves inside during evenings and night to avoid moisture being absorbed from environment.
