Healthy Green Dhania chutney(Coriander Chutney)


My son loves this chutney and it's also an easy and quick to make recipe.This healthy chutney when made with garlic makes it rich in anti-oxidants and is great for immunity too.Garlic acts as a powerful antibiotic,especially when eaten raw.

The chutney can be spread on bread while making sandwiches,can be eaten with pakoras or simply with hot parathas and rotis.

While buying coriander leaves,make sure you buy the fresh variety with no yellow leaves.
Wash the leaves thoroughly under running water and cut stems that are thick.Do not throw away all the stems.The stems taste equally good as the leaves.
