Coriander Chutney

This is the easiest, most yum chutney you will find! Takes 5 minutes to put together and is going to have you licking your fingers!

Coriander chutney was not a part of our home food growing up. We usually ate it when we went to Indian restaurants or ordered in kebabs. When I started working in Bombay, I discovered chutney cheese sandwiches in the office canteen and also started eating a lot more chutney in general. That’s when I made it at home for the first time.

Over the past year or so, I’ve seen how often it is made in my partner’s house and I love having it with my meals. Now this has become a regular in my house too, less so than in A’s, but still way more often than before.

You just need a few basic ingredients and you’re ready with this fresh, spicy, garlicky, tangy chutney. It is super versatile too!

Use it as a dip, a spread, a marinade, add it to a dry veggie dish or sometimes just as is for a quick flavour kick!

Do what I do, make a big batch and keep it in the fridge. It will easily last you a week or so. Enjoy!
