Recently I made a new friend and she makes the most delicious coriander chutney I've ever tasted. Fortunately, Anju graciously agreed to share her recipe.
Ingredients you may not have like powdered green mango (amchoor/amchur) and asafoetida can be found in spice stores like Kalustyan's and Indian stores like Patel Brothers, which also sells products online.
You can serve this chutney as a side dish or condiment with almost anything - vegetables, tofu, tempeh, meat, fish, or seafood.
1 bunch cilantro, washed and chopped
1 piece of ginger, washed and chopped
1 or 2 green chilli peppers, washed and chopped
1 tomato, washed and chopped
1 tablespoon ground coriander seeds
1 tablespoon ground cumin seeds
2 to 3 tablespoons of powdered green mango (amchoor/amchur)
Salt to taste
- Add the cilantro, ginger, chili peppers, and tomato to a blender with a little bit of water.
- Purée until smooth.
- Add the turmeric, coriander, cumin, powdered green mango, asafoetida, and salt.
- Blend again into a smooth, thick paste.
- Add water as needed.
