  • 1 bunch cilantro (~2-3 cups packed with stems) washed
  • ½ cup peanuts, unsalted, not roasted
  • 1 small green chili pepper, optional
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 inches ginger (~3 tablespoons grated*)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar + more to taste
  • 1 juice of lime
  • ½ tablespoon salt + more to taste
  • cup water, use more as needed


  • Add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until creamy in texture.
  • Serve drizzled on top or on the side or on top with your favorite dishes!


  • Ginger packs a lot of heat. If you prefer yours milder, use only 1 inch (or 1 tablespoon of ginger).
  • Start with 1 pepper and add more according to your spice tolerance. 
  • Start with ⅓ cup water and work your way up from there until desired consistency. 
  • Cilantro bunches come in different sizes so adjust the flavors according to your tastebuds!
