Coriander Roasted Dal Chutney

Fresh coriander is hard to come by during summer and when available, its exorbitantly priced. My vegetable vendor who supplies fresh vegetables, grown in his small farm, brought 2 bunches of fresh coriander. Delighted, I put my favorite herb to use by way of an easy breezy chutney to go with our morning breakfast, Dosa. Makes for a wonderful side with tiffins like dosas and idlis.

  1. Have been haunting your site lately. Thanks for the wonderful recipes.
    Have never sauted coriander for a chutney before.
    Again, am looking forward to trying out all your recipes.

  2. hi Sailu:

    I also make this at home..its indeed heaven with crisp dosa / idli…
    One variation that could be tried out (which we add is) to fry 1/2 lemon size tamarind as well to add that extra zing and few crystals of sugar as well.. alternately, one may also add lime juice just before serving…

    cheers

  3. Dear Sailu:

    This Chutney is very simple to make, and there is no seasoning required.
    Great recipe and idea. I must try this!

  4. Sailu garu,

    Can I substitute anything else for the coconut in this chutney ?

    Thanks.

    Omit it if you do not have coconut on hand. There is no substitute for coconut but you could roast a few sesame seeds OR use melon seeds (need not be roasted).
