Chutneys are popular condiments in Pakistan/India. This cilantro chutney is one of the most popular chutneys on the dining table. The purpose of the chutneys is to enhance the flavors of the main entrees, very much like any condiment. They can be used as a dipping sauce just like ketchup. Cilantro and dried red chilies create an explosive combination.
2 cups fresh cilantro, chopped
3 Red dried chilies
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Add everything to a food processor and make sure all ingredients become a thick paste.
Serve as a dipping sauce with samosas and pakoras. This sauce is also used as a complement to the entrees.
This is very simple in terms of ingredients and execution, but the results are outstanding! I feel that it’s a great easy way to incorporate bold flavors in dishes that would otherwise be slightly dry or over seasoned – consider using chutneys to bridge that gap and definitely upload your creations onto our Facebook page!
