How to preserve Mint Leaves ?

For those living in US / Europe where many spices / greens to be brought from Speciality Stores this would be helpful. I use this preserved Mint Leaves in place where I have to use fresh Mint leaves - Like in Biryani, Curry, Jaljeera.

Ingredients : 
  • Mint Leaves
  • Water
Method : 
  • Take fresh Mint leaves. Remove any discoloured mint leaves. Rinse and chop them.
  • Take a ice cube tray and fill 3/4 of each cube with chopped mint leaves and rest with water.
  • Freeze them like you make ice cubes.
  • Once the cubes are formed, remove from the tray and put them into a zip lock bag and store in the freezer.
  • Remove from freezer when ever you wanna use. You can run cold water through the mint cubes and you would have fresh mint for your preparation
Note: When you freeze the mint without water, they discolour and turn black though they dont lose taste.  This can be done with any greens like Coriander leaves / Dill / Spinach. This can be stored for 3 to 4 months.
Also Known as : Preserved Pudina, Frozen Pudina
