Cilantro Dhania Chutney
The bright green color and the hot and sour taste of dhania chutney adds a zip to any dish. It is the most popular chutney served with meals or snacks. It can be eaten with just about anything -- pulao, samosas, dal, and roti.
1 small bunch cilantro
1/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1-2 green chili
1 teaspoon salt
Clean cilantro of any discolored leaves and stems. Cut about 1 inch from the tips of the stems. Leave the rest of the stems intact. Cilantro is often full of sand, so wash thoroughly in 2-3 changes of water. Place onion, cumin seeds, green chilies, salt, lemon juice, and cilantro in a blender and grind to a smooth paste. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
This recipe keeps well in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, although the color might change to a dark green. You can freeze the extra chutney to retain its bright green color.
