coriander coconut chutney (raw cilantro side dish)
I love to have cilantro greens without cooking it. One of the best ways to have it is as a raw chutney.
Cilantro is abundant in vitamins: A, C, K, minerals: iron, magnesium and calcium. It has antibiotic, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, heavy metal detox properties. Regular consumption in raw form is very good for health.
A simple raw, saatvik (no onion, no garlic) chutney can be prepared in combination with coconut, green chilly. Is great with idli, dosa, upma or any other savory snack.
I am submitting ths recipe to the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck 4 over at the blog Unrefined Vegan.
coriander leaves- 1 1/2 bunches
unsweetened shredded raw coconut- 1/3 cup (I used frozen)
green chilly- 2-3
asafoetida powder- a pinch
salt- to taste
mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp.
whole urad/ black gram- 1 tsp.
oil- 1/2 tbsp.
* Separate leaves from stalks, wash and grind leaves with coconut, green chillies, salt. Add additional coconut if needed for a thicker consistency.
* Heat oil, add mustard seeds, urad gram and wait till the seeds splutter. Add to the chutney.

This would make a nice spread on a sandwich too I bet or perhaps over fish?
Yes, Stacey, it would be good in a sandwich if it isn’t runny. I don’t know about fish, though, l don’t eat it. 🙂
