Coriander Chutney is a staple in Indian cuisine. It brightens up your meals with refreshing and spicy notes from the coriander and the chili. Another reason this sauce is so refreshing is that it doesn’t use any oil. The tomato provides all the juice. So if your chutney comes out a little dry…just add another (half) of a tomato 🙂
We hope you will make it and that you will enjoy it as much as we do on salads, sandwiches, veggie burgers, in wraps, with couscous, falafel, Indian food, Mediterranean food…
