coriander chutney: coriander chutney recipe, cilantro chutney

here’s a coriander chutney recipe. one chutney and many uses. this coriander chutney recipe is a no onion and no garlic recipe.

coriander chutney is a nice accompaniment with veg sandwich, potato pakora, aloo tikki, dhokla, dabeli, samosa, aloo tikki burgerpeas kachori and even goes well with chaat items like bhel puri, ragda patties, sev puri, dahi sev batata puri.

by the way if you do not have time to make coconut chutney for idli, dosa or medu vada, then you can make this cilantro chutney instead and it goes well with south indian snacks too.

usually i make green chutneys and keep them in the fridge. they are very handy when you want to apply them to your toasts or breads or have them as a dip with some finger food or snacks.

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.

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.

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.
