Fresh Coriander Chutney
« on: July 13, 2009, 02:29:43 am »
Name of Recipe: Coriander Chutney
Number of People:10
Ingredients:The Juice of a small lemon
120 grams fresh coriander , stems & leaves
cup dried grated unsweeted coconut, (about 10 grams)
40 grams fresh ginger root, scraped & roughly chopped
70 grams onion, roughly chopped
15 grams fresh hot red or green chili
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon black pepper, fresh ground
1 MC water


Preparation:Place lemon juice, ginger root, onion, and chili in jug. Set timer for 10 seconds speed 7.
Scrape sides down and repeat 10 seconds speed 7 Add 60 grams of coriander set timer for 15 seconds at speed 8. Scrape sides add the last 60 grams of coriander and repeat timer for 15 seconds at speed 8. Add coconut water, sugar, salt, and pepper. Set timer for 15 seconds on speed 10. Repeat 10 to 15 seconds at speed 10 if necessary. Refrigerate for at least 2 hrs.

This will keep in the refrigerator for a week. It is a little runny when first made but after refrigerating the dried coconut soaks up some of the liquid It a green chutney served with samosas. My sister-in-law likes it as a sandwich with bread and butter.



Tips/Hints:f you don't like it hot remove the seeds from the chilies. If it is too hot after you make it you can add more coconut a tablespoon at a time.

Great little recipe - I do a similar one with cashews in it - hubby may like that variation?  Probably not authentic though !

I bet he would like it. I do a lot of non authentic changes to Indian recipes when I find I am out of something. I made curry with powdered ginger instead of fresh once and he liked it better so now I  throw in some powdered ginger in when I make curry. We eat apple slices with our curry & that is not done in India.

Use dessicated or shredded dried coconut that has been softened for an hour or so with the MC of boiling water - it works fine.

You will find that in the US they have sweetened dessicated coconut in many recipes.

I buy dried shredded unsweetened coconut and throw it in without soaking it the liquid in the recipe is enough to rehydrate it after sitting in the refrigerator a few hours. I have always bought the finely shredded but with the THX I would not think it would make a difference how fine it is.
