  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.

  2. thanks for this recipe. It’s easy to make but will it taste good with semolina and vermicelli idli?

  3. 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

        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.

  4. 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!4 stars

  5. 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.

  6. What a gorgeous color of coriander chutney! My friend makes awesome samosas. I want to dip her samosas in your chutney!! I’m surprised it’s easier to make this. I need to keep this recipe handy. Thanks Dassana!

  7. Dassana,

    even i hope to see samosa receipe soon…
    though i have been kept waiting for gatta receipe 🙁 till now
    ….by hit and trial i am successful in making soft gattas since last 2-3 times

    • yup renuka…. coming soon 🙂

      i know about the gatta recipe. just not made it. i have a huge collection of recipes in the drafts. indian as well as world cuisine. but will for sure make the gatta recipe soon. good to know you making soft gattas now.

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

  9. 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.
