Coriander Peanut Chutney is a mildly spicy Indian condiment / sidedish that is very easy to prepare and goes well with many Indian snacks / dishes. Fresh Coriander leaves / Cilantro is the key ingredient in this chutney. Coriander Peanut Chutney goes really well with samosas, veg sandwiches, tawa sandwiches, idra dhokla, pakoras, veg rolls, veggie patties etc. This Cilantro Chutney can be stored in an air tight container and refrigerated for many days. Like other Indian households, I always have this chutney prepared and stored in my refrigerator and ready to be served with different snacks.
To give a slight twist to the traditional Coriander Chutney, I have added some peanuts and a small piece of fresh coconut in this chutney. You can always experiment with this coriander chutney by adding different ingredients as an when you like. I have added a couple of green chilies to give spicy taste to this coriander peanut chutney. If you don’t eat too spicy food and want to prepare mild chutney, just remove the seeds from green chilies before grinding them in mixer. This way all the flavors to green chilies will be added to chutney without the spice.
