Share this Recipe:

Coriander Chutney
Prep time
Category: chutney
Yield: 1 cup
  • Coriander (Cilantro) leaves – 1 bunch
  • Green chilies – 4
  • Roasted split gram (Roasted Chana Dal or Dalia) – 2 tablespoons
  • Lemon juice – 2 teaspoons
  • Oil – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – to taste
  1. Wash cilantro leaves properly (I did not remove stems).
  2. Mix all the ingredients except oil in blender.
  3. Grind them into smooth paste. Do not add any water otherwise chutney becomes runny. (When you wash cilantro leaves there are few drops of water on it which is enough to grind) You need to push between to help the grinding process.
  4. Then add oil and make one swirl.
  5. Your chutney is ready to serve.
Additional Info
- You can store chutney in an air tight container in refrigerator up to 2 weeks. - You can freeze chutney for 1 month. (Use ice cube tray to freeze it. Once frozen store the cubes in container and use as required.) - You can use peanuts instead of Dalia.

      I have no idea why your comments were gone into spam directly. It happened only Saturday. But now it works fine by itself. No clue.
