Chutney is a condiment served with all the meals and with many dishes. It is like a dip. I make many different varieties of chutney, this one is made of mainly coriander leaves and sweet basil. Basil gives a nice and refreshing flavor to this chutney.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Chopped coriander leaves with stems – 2 cups

Garlic – 3-4 cloves
Ginger – 1 inch cube
Green chilies – 2
Peanuts – 1 tbsp
Olive oil – 1 tbsp
Lemon juice – 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
1. Roughly chop coriander and basil leaves, ginger, garlic and green chilies.
2. In a blender/mixer, fist grind garlic, ginger, green chilies, and peanuts with little water and make slightly smooth paste.
3. In the same blender add chopped coriander leaves and blend it until it is smooth. Add lemon juice, olive oil and salt and blend it for 30 seconds. Chutney is now ready. Put in the Fridge immediately so it doesn’t change the colour. You can store it for 1-2 months in a deep freezer. Use the small container or baby food bottles to store, and remove one bottle at a time to use.
