Coriander chutney (hari dhania chutney) is basically spicy, aromatic Indian dip that is served as a accompaniment with Indian snacks and appetizers.
At my home my mom still uses hand grinding stone (sil batta) to make this coriander chutney. Believe me, nothing can replace that raw taste of hand grinded mom made coriander chutney.
Coriander chutney is a must have in my fridge. It can be used as dip or spread. I use this chutney on parathas as a spread or on bread to make sandwiches. When served with any appetizer or snack it enhances the flavor of the dish multifold.
Making corinder chutney is super simple. Just put all the ingredients together in a grinder and grind them. While grinding you may need to add water to aid grinding. Make sure to add very little water otherwise chutney will become very watery. I used garlic but if you don’t like it you can skip it. You can also later the amount of green chillies according to your taste. Sometimes for variation I use tamarind juice instead of lemon. That also tastes great .
