Idli and dosa are a staple breakfast and dinner item in most South Indian homes. So I'm always on the look for different chutney recipes to serve with dosa and idli. Coriander chutney is one easy and quick chutney that goes well with idli and dosa. It can also served with bajji and bonda. Check out my kothamalli (coriander) thogayal for rice.
This chutney is a good way to use up your leftover coriander leaves bunch. I love the raw flavor of coriander leaves, so I don't saute the leaves. If you don't like raw taste, you can fry them a little. The coriander stems are more flavorful than leaves, so I add some of the tender stems also to the chutney. If you are bored of coconut chutney, try this flavorful chutney for a change to serve along idli and dosa.
- Adjust the amount of green chillies according to your spice preference.
- You can skip the garlic if you don't like the taste.
- If you don't like rasw taste of coriander, saute them for a minute.
