Fresh Coriander Chutney – A Healthy Spread

10 June 2010 2 Comments

Green chutney

Coriander leaves are the most commonly used ingredients in Indian cooking. From garnishing to making various dishes coriander leaves hold a special place in every refrigerator.

And being rich in iron and many other minerals fresh coriander should be included in our daily diet for better health.

This chutney is a regular in my house, a small glass bottle of the same could be found in my refrigerator at anytime. It comes very handy when unexpected guests arrive, as I could easily serve this with chapattis, dosa, Idly or as a sandwich spread.


  • A bunch of fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 medium size tomato (sour variety)
  • 1 green chilly
  • 2 cloves of garlic (optional)
  • ½ tsp of cumin seeds (jeera)
  • Salt as required
  • A pinch of asafoetida (hing)

Method: Pluck the coriander leaves and wash under running water. Mix all ingredients and grind it to a fine paste. Store in a glass bottle and keep in refrigerator. Stays good for a week.

Tangy green and fresh coriander chutney is ready to serve with any of your favorite dish. Easy to make with very few ingredients, this is my magic wand to create quick meals in a jiffy.

Shall write many variations of the same chutney in my upcoming posts to help you give extra zing to your meal. Keep connected!

    adding a dash of lemon juice helps.

    And my mother always said – dont add water, let the juices do the magic.
