A blend of coriander (cilantro) leaves, yogurt and spices is a perfect accompaniment to many Indian savory dishes. Whether be samosas, pakodas, kebabs, or chaats, this chutney comes in handy. It a very versatile and flavorful accompaniment. If I need something on the side then this one is one of my favorite go-to flavors to add a zing to a dish.
Fresh cilantro mixed with yogurt, onion, garlic and spices are blended in a mixer until smooth and there you have it – a delicious chutney. It is a great complement to India street food, but seems versatile enough to use with chicken and fish.
I always have a batch of green chutney prepared in my refrigerator. This chutney can be prepared in advance and stored in refrigerator for 4-5 days. My family enjoys this chutney with nearly everything namely parathas, raitas, rice and sandwiches.
A small tip – If you add a teaspoon of olive oil to your prepared chutney, it will last longer.
