Method :

1. Wash leaves drain them and keep aside.
2. Now blend mint, coriander, green chilli with salt and lemon.(lemon is added to avoid discoloration)
3. Heat oil in the frying pan add urad dhal then slice onion saute till onions becomes transparent .
4. Now add the blended mixture stir it until all the moisture is absorbed.
