Don’t miss the long list of foods you can eat it with

Most families have a tradition that is unique to them – from taking trips to eating at least one meal of the day together – and my family is no different. One of our traditions includes starting most holidays during monsoon with a plate full of piping hot, mom-made onion and spinach bhajiyas (pakoras or fritters) with coriander chutney. Over the years, my siblings, parents, and I have bonded over several such plates of yummy pakoras accompanied by coriander chutney. Nostalgia aside, it didn’t take us long to realise that this dish became our monsoon-favourite mainly because of the lip-smacking coriander chutney recipe that mom makes.
Admit it or not, the flavourful coriander chutney enhances the taste of the dishes it is eaten with. Not just that, the coriander chutney recipe is one of the most versatile dips from Indian cuisine. Of course, each state and region has its own version of the coriander chutney recipe. From sandwiches to dosa, chaat, and mathri cookies, Indian snacks are incomplete without coriander chutney. That said, here’s a step-by-step guide by Aditi Govitrikar to make a basic coriander chutney recipe at home.
