By the way if you do not have time to make Coconut chutney for idli, dosa or medu vada, then you can make this chutney instead and it goes well with South Indian snacks too. This chutney is great to go on a sandwich or also as a dip for dosa or for idli.

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.

Follow this easy cilantro chutney recipe and it just might become a staple food in your home!

  1. You know I learned cooking because of you. I am a student in Melbourne and after leaving home(Pune) I didn’t even know how to cook anything. Then I started using your recipes to make easy sabzis. Thank you so much for all the recipes.
    Love from Melbourne (Australia)

    • thank you revati. i am so glad that the recipes are helping you. home cooked food is the best especially when you live away from your country. thanks again and wish you all the best.

  6. 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.5 stars

    • thanks. coriander does not freeze well. the taste changes a lot after you freeze it. so i would not suggest to freeze this chutney.

  7. Can we use table salt instead of the salts u mentioned here??

    • teena, yes you can use.

  8. Excellent recipe. Just made it without changing anything! Came out perfect. Thank you!5 stars

    • welcome shelly. glad to know this.

  9. Out of interest what can used in place of Lemon Juice?

    • nate, you can use dry mango powder or dry pomegranate seeds.

      • Thanks

        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.

        • 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.

  10. Thank you.5 stars

    • welcome kohila

  11. Nice recipe! But will it taste good with bread?5 stars

  19. It’s too good..
    its help me on my cooking skill

  20. 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.

  21. Thanks for this recipe! I can’t wait to make it!

    • thanks karen
