This Coriander Chutney Recipe (also known as ‘Green Chutney’ or ‘Cilantro Chutney’ if you’re from the US) is a flavoursome Indian sauce made with coriander, chilli, garlic, ginger, lime, salt, sugar and oil. It is a great accompaniment to all sorts of dishes; adding freshness as well as a little spice.
I’m a big fan of sauces. All the sauces – I don’t discriminate. Sweet, sour, salty, savoury, herby, creamy, I’ll take them all. I love that a sauce can completely change the composition of a dish and add new flavours, textures, smells and colours. And this Indian chutney does a fabulous job of doing all of that.
I created this Coriander Chutney recipe to go with a creamy, soothing Tadka Dahl Recipe. The zest and sharpness of the chutney balances the creaminess of the Dahl perfectly. While the pop of green sauce contrasts with the creamy orange dahl beautifully. They weren’t lying when they said we eat with our eyes!
While it is a perfect accompaniment to dalh, it also pairs perfectly with dishes such as curries, breads, rice dishes, grilled meats or even a salad. Maybe try it on top of my Roast Chicken Tikka Masala dish and tell me what you think?
How to make Coriander Chutney
This Coriander Chutney Recipe is a mixture of coriander, chilli, garlic, ginger, lime, salt, sugar and oil. How you chose to mix everything together is up to you. I like to finely chop all of the ingredients before mixing them with the lime juice, oil, salt and sugar, which leaves you with a chunkier chutney. However, you could use a pestle and mortar or a food processor to end up with a smoother sauce.

A food processor
If you would prefer to use a food processor to chop the ingredients, I couldn’t recommend this Bosch Food Processor more. It has a handy mini-chopper attachment which is perfect for the job. Pulse the ingredients for a chunkier chutney, or blend a little more for a smoother sauce.
