Peanut – Coriander Chutney Recipe with step by step pictures

A few weeks back coriander bunches were highly priced! Just 5 springs would cost INR 10!! Then all of a sudden, two very large bunches became available for the same INR 10!!

When the offer is so attractive, I had to buy a couple of bunches,right. Only after bringing it home, did I think of ways to use it up.


So I made a whole bunch of dishes with coriander leaves as the star and today’s post is one of them.

Amma likes coriander flavored chutney and so paired this with soft, fluffy idlis for the breakfast.

Piping hot idlis smeared with a little ghee , flavorful peanut coriander chutney and a spicy tomato onion chutney on the side was an awesome meal indeed!

  1. I am a big peanut chutney fan and have three version in my blog. Now I have found the fourth version to try and do I need to say, your chutneys are a hit in my family. I love the addition of cilantro in the chutney. Makes it so flavorful.

  2. Husband likes Cilantro so much and loves adding to whatever chutney he makes. This combo of peanuts and roasted gram dal is new to me. Would sure try this version.
