Coriander-Peanut Chutney (without onion)


Can we imagine Indian cuisine without chutneys? Undoubtedly each n every would say “No”!! because our cuisine is incomplete without this humble chutney.
Green chutney or fresh coriander chutney is one of the most relished chutneys,  so simple to make with a few ingredients and yummy too!! I won’t forget to say this!
 The chutney is the best accompaniment with each cuisine from north to south and east to west. Be it any meal of the day or our favourite chaat dishes, this chutney is a must
A normal coriander chutney consists of onion and garlic but there are days like fasting or vrata days when we avoid the use of onion-garlic. Also, a big community of people is there which does not include onion and garlic in their food. So we can replace onion with peanuts and curd. Peanuts give the body to chutney and add the nuttiness to it. Curd gives it a little sour taste also blending gets easier
