So here is what the coriander/cilantro chutney or dhana/dhania ni chutney looks like:

Looks great huh!?! Ok, so let's take a look at the recipe:


6 tbsp chopped coriander/cilantro (wash the coriander stalks first and use only the top half of the coriander stalks)

0.5 tsp garlic (grated)
0.5 tsp salt (level tsp - add more if desired)
1.5 tsp water
0.5 tsp sunflower oil
