Coriander leaves chutney ( Dhaniya chutney for Vrat/Fast )

It is a good idea to make a small bottle of this amazing, tasty dhaniya/ Coriander leaves  chutney and keep in the fridge during the Fasting /Vrat days as it comes handy to serve as a delightful dip for most of the Vrat dishes.

I make this chutney quite frequently when ever I get good fresh bunches even on other days as it  has a variety of uses in my dishes other than Vrat recipes.

It is simple and made in minutes and after tasting this you will wonder why you ever bothered to make coconut chutneys all the time.


1 big bunch of fresh coriander leaves.
1 tbsp lime juice.
A very small pinch of rock salt ( sendha namak)
1 tsp cumin seeds.
2-3 green chillies depending on how spicy you want your chutney.

3 tsp roasted peanuts ( optional )


Wash and clean the coriander leaves, remove the stalks. Chop them fine for easy grinding.
Grind everything in the mixie without adding to much water, just sprinkles will do. Add the lime juice, salt and mix well.

Store in a clean dry jar , stays good in fridge upto a week.

Left over chutney can be used to make sabzis.
