Green Coriander Leaf Chutney – 1

A few doctors say chlorophyll is king and, like all leafy green vegetables, coriander is also full of it. Coriander is full of antioxidants that have immune-boosting, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective effects as well as protect your skin from aging and sun damage. Coriander can help reduce unpleasant digestive symptoms like bloating and discomfort often experienced by people with IBS, and also help boost appetite. And most important of all it’s a delicious accompaniment to any meal.

Serves 6 – 10 or more as part of a traditional Indian meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch coriander leaves
  • ½ fresh coconut, grated or cut into slivers
  • 2-3 green chillies (this will differ based on how spicy hot they are)
  • 1” ball of tamarind or juice of ½ lemon or peeled raw green mango
  • Salt to taste

Method

Clean and wash the leaves and drain in a colander for 10-15 minutes to remove as much moisture from the water as possible. Grind all the ingredients together finely. This chutney can be used as an accompaniment with a regular meal or as a spread in sandwiches and rolls. A great combination is using this as a spread on whole wheat flat bread (rotis) with slices or strips of cucumber and tomato and is a nourishing snack for children too.

Note: Fresh greens when eaten raw are a great source of nutrition. The chlorophyll in greens helps greatly in reversing many diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.

For the Whole-Food Plant-Based (WFPB) version:

This is a whole plant based recipe by default if tamarind or lime juice is used.

The only replacement is to use rock salt in place of refined salt.
