Ingredients for Making Coriander Chutney:

Coriander leaves – one bunch
Green chilly (chopped)– 2
Ginger (chopped) – 1" piece
Cumin Powder – ¼ tsp (optional)
Salt – 1 tsp
Oil – 1 tsp
Lemon juice – few drops

How to Make Coriander Chutney:

Chop big stems of Coriander Leaves & wash thoroughly two or three times, so that mud & sand get washed off.

Take a big blender and add in all ingredients like Green Chilli, Ginger, Cumin Powder, Salt, Oil, Lemon Juice. On the top add coriander leaves. Blitz it well. You will get a coarse paste here. Transfer it to a chutney blender and blend it nicely to get a smooth paste. Check the seasoning and add more salt or lime juice if required. The spicy and tangy green coriander chutney is ready.Transfer the content to a small bowl.

Now the Coriander Chutney is ready for serving, if you want it immediately. Then store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator and use it whenever required.

My Recipe Notes on Dhanya Chutney:

1. Don’t add water while grinding, it will change taste.
2. Always it’s better to use a small blender (chutney bowl) to blitz it to get a smooth texture rather than in a food processor or the ancient method of mortar and pestle.
3. Blending process: You may have to initially use a bigger bowl for blending, in order to accommodate the whole bunch of coriander leaves, and later transfer to a chutney bowl.
4. If you want you can add one or two small pods of garlic to get a wonderful flavour.
5. We can keep this chutney in the fridge for a week or two and can freeze well also.
6 If you want to keep this chutney for a long time, it’s better to add a bit more salt. You can keep it in the ice cube tray, once they are frozen remove from ice tray and put them in a Ziploc bag for later usage. When you need to use it, take it and de frost it.
