Coriander chutney (also known as Dhania chutney) is a staple in Indian cuisine.

This easy, spicy and delicious cilantro chutney recipe might just become a staple food in your home! The perfect sauce to have on hand for toasts, breads, or finger foods, I love to serve this coriander chutney whenever I’m looking for a quick snack or appetizer.

Green chutney for chaat recipes – a quick chutney that can be added to many chaat snacks like sev puri, ragda patties, bhel puri and samosa chole.

This green chutney is made from fresh coriander leaves. If you want then you can add mint leaves also.

The chutney is versatile and can also be used as an accompaniment with snacks like sandwiches, batata vada, vada pav, veg cutlet. To make the chutney more spicy, you can increase the quantity of green chillies.

This green chutney stays good in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can prepare the chutney a day before you prepare the chaat snacks and refrigerate it.


  • 2 cups tightly packed coriander leaves (cilantro leaves) – chopped
  • 2 green chilies – chopped, add more for a spicy chutney
  • ½ inch ginger – chopped (optional)
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon lime juice or add as per taste
  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  • ½ teaspoon chaat masala
  • ½ teaspoon salt or as required
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon water for grinding or add as required


  1. Rinse the coriander leaves well in water and roughly chop them.
  2. Take the chopped coriander leaves, chopped green chillies & ginger, cumin powder, chaat masala, lemon juice and salt in a grinder jar or a small blender jar.
  3. Add 1 or 2 tsp water and grind to a smooth chutney. Add a few teaspoons more of the water if required. But don’t make the chutney too thin or watery.
  4. Remove the chutney in a bowl and keep aside.
  5. Use this green chutney as required for chaat recipes.
