Coriander coconut chutney. Beautifully green coriander (cilantro) leaves paired with fresh grated coconut for a deliciously simple chutney recipe. Little touches of ginger, lemon juice and green chilies add loads of flavor to this chutney.
Just another reason to love this beautiful green herb! Growing up, I totally disliked the flavor of coriander leaves, but now, I’m a hardcore fan. I think over the years I’ve developed a huge affection towards these green leaves, it has become a vital ingredient in my kitchen.
This coriander coconut chutney is a must addition to South Indian dosa, idli and vada. Trust me, the coriander-coconut combo in this recipe is to die for. The best part? It’s so simple yet tastes so good.
All you need to do is blend all the ingredients together and add a touch of tempered spices for maximum flavor. One of the most important steps to create the perfect chutney is the right balance of all the ingredients used in this recipe.
Simply grind together coriander (cilantro) leaves, coconut, green chilies, ginger, lemon juice and roasted split chickpeas. To make roast chickpeas, you just need to heat up a frying pan over low heat, and dry roast until the lentils are browned.
While grinding, you can also add in a little water to make the process easier. Again, remember not to add too much water. Ideally, this coriander coconut chutney needs a semi-thick consistency.
Next up, tempering the spices. Just the right kind of finishing touch for your chutney. Splutter some mustard seeds, brown some urad dal, and add a pinch of asafetida to add the perfect delicious note. Oh, and some curry leaves. No recipe is perfect without the addition of herbs. In this case, plenty of herbs.
Now just add this tadka or tempered spices to the ground coriander (cilantro) mixture and give it a good stir. Done. Simple as that!
I’m obsessed with the lovely green color of this chutney. Very pretty and amazingly delicious!
