Hello World! Just a quick post for a quick recipe...5-Minute Cilantro Chutney! I wanted to share how I make the cilantro chutney that I use in many of my recipes. The chutney is used widely in Indian dishes and made in various ways. My Dad and all the amazing men on my Dad's side inspired this particular version of the chutney (they make THE BEST chutneys).
Here's what you have to look forward to with this 5-minute Cilantro Chutney:
- Full of freshness with cilantro
- Burst of flavor with ginger (LOTS of ginger)
- Tanginess with lime
- Spice with green chili peppers
- Texture with peanuts.
All you have to is add those ingredients into a large blender with some sugar and salt and blend, baby, blend. 5 minutes y'all...that's it!
Cilantro is PACKED with benefits...I could write a whole post on this. But here is what I love about cilantro:
- Full of antioxidants
- Good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin K
I could ALSO write a whole post about ginger (probably will at some point!) but here’s some of the good stuff:
- Anti inflammatory
- Great for nausea
- Great for digestion
- Good source of Vitamin C
I like to use this chutney recipe with my Vegetable Samosa Puffs and Phyllo Chaat Cups (coming soon!).
