    This is a great recipe. Have you tried freezing it? It would be good to make a big batch and then freeze it in small portions.

        Am interested in making the Coriander Chutney though have recently developed an allergy to citrus and originally considering adding Cider Vinegar or a bit of water to the mixture.

        • says

          welcome nate. skip adding citrus. no need to add any vinegar. the citrus is added to preserve the green color of the chutney. its not essential to add it. if you can get dry mango power or dry pomegranate powder then just to get sour hints, you can add of them. or otherwise make the chutney plain without the citrus.

    Before I travelled to India in 2011, I would make this with olive oil, salt, pepper, chillis and coriander and then pan fry with some pasta – coriander heypresto pesto!

    For some reason i can’t give it five stars but i would if i could!

    I just have a question. You only have to stir the ingredients in water and it comes out that smooth? seems that would be difficult with the chilies i guess you have to chop the heck out of them, lol.

    • says

      hi liz. the ingredients are not stirred. they are blended in a blender or a chutney grinder till smooth. i think i have to mention the word blender in the recipe.

    Dassana, even though the ingredients are simple, this chutney has so many different flavours when made with different hands!
    Loved the snapshots too.

    I love to store chutney’s at home. My most common and fav ones are mint, cilantro and tamarind chutney. They go so well with chaat and other Indian snacks. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Your chutney looks so good and has got that lovely green color perfectly.
