Coriander chutney recipe - in the western part of the world, coriander is called cilantro. Hence this chutney is also known as cilantro chutney.
It has spicy, slightly sweet and tangy taste. In short, the perfect chatpata taste.
The spicy taste is obviously comes from green chilies. You can reduce it by decreasing the chili quantity as per you liking spice level.
The addition of sugar gives the slight sweet taste and addition of lemon juice makes it tangy.
At that time make this chutney because the chatpata taste comes from just one chutney and will satisfy your craving.
How to make coriander chutney recipe?
1) First pick the coriander leaves, I have kept the stems because I do not mind eating stems. Dunk them into the bowl of water for few minutes, so all the dirt will settle down at the bottom of the bowl. I have added green chilies and ginger in the same bowl.
2) Now gently (without disturbing the settled dirt) remove them and add into the blender jar. Also add rest of the ingredients (dalia, salt, sugar, black salt, roasted cumin powder, chaat masala).
For a variation you can add handful of mint leaves in it.
3) Also squeeze the lemon juice and add ¼ cup of water.
4) Run the grinder and make smooth paste.
Remove it to a bowl or store in the airtight jar.
Storing the coriander chutney:
Store in the clean airtight jar. It stays good for a week in refrigerator. Since it has good amount of lemon juice it helps to preserve the chutney and will increase the shelf life. It stays good for a month or more in freezer. You can freeze in ice cube trays or in smaller containers.
Serving suggestion: This chutney can be served with samosa, aloo pakora, aloo tikki, veg cutlet, vada or any other finger food you can think of. You can spread it on the bread slice for making sandwiches.
