Coriander Chutney Recipe (Dhaniya Chutney)

Dhaniya chutney or coriander chutney is a recipe without which you can’t imagine to have stuffed paranthas in India. You can’t imagine having gobi ka parantha and aloo parantha. You can also have it with pakoras, samosas, or any other Indian snacks and meal.

Also, coriander chutney will take less than 5 minutes to make with most of the ingredients available at home easily and doesn’t contain any animal products. Apart from this, it’s good for health because there is no cooking process involved and detoxifies the body.

You can surely make it in advance but not beyond 3 days. However, it may start losing flavours day by day. I recommend to make it when you want to use it. It?ll be completely different experience.

How to Store Coriander Chutney?

My advice for storing it is that you always keep it in any glass vessels with a lid. Take only the amount of it you want to consume. If it’s mixed with other food items, it’ll spoil quickly and also loses flavour.


Coriander Leaves – 1 cup

Green chilli – 1 nos (You can add 2 nos if comfortable with spicy chutney)

Ginger – 1 inch

Garlic – 2 cloves

Lemon/Lime juice – 1 teaspoon

Cumin powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Salt – to taste
