Curry Leaf Coriander Chutney

Pin It Now!
Curry leaves are extensively used in asian culinary preparations due to its strong and unique flavor.  Addition of just a few leaves can add so much flavor to a meal.  These leaves are high in iron content and are popularly used in herbal medicine.  Coriander or cilantro are more popular and are widely used in cooking.  I combined these nutritious leaves to make chutney.  Chutnies can be served as condiments or they can be mixed with rice and eaten.  They are popularly served with idlis and dosas.

Ingredients
1 cup curry leaves
2 cup chopped cilantro
4 hot chillies
4 garlic cloves
Tamarind - small marble size
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Oil
Salt to taste

Tempering
1/4 tsp mustard and cumin seeds each
Few dashes of hing
Oil

Method
Heat oil in a pan add curry leaves, chillies, garlic, cilantro and stir cook till roasted. Add tamarind, salt and coconut mix well and let it cool.  When cooled add some water and blend to a coarse paste.  Heat oil and do the tempering.  Add the tempering to the chutney and mix well.
