CUISINEGlobal, Indian


  • 1 cup coriander leaves tightly packed leaves along with tender stems
  •  cup sesame seeds optional
  • 2 jalapeno I used green chili
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon coriander powder
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder optional
  • salt to taste


  • Wash and drain cilantro leaves. I used tender cilantro stalks as well. They add so much flavor to the chutney.
  • Dry roast the sesame seeds for a couple of minutes and keep them aside. They should start to pop.
  • Add teaspoon of oil to the same pan and fry the green chili. This step is optional, and you can also use the green chili without frying.
  • Now take all the ingredients except cilantro leaves and grind them into a smooth paste or fine powder. If required, add 1 or 2 tablespoon of water.
  • Add cilantro leaves to the blender jar and make it a smooth paste.
  • Transfer the cilantro dip into the glass jar, and the delicious and flavorful cilantro chutney is ready to serve!


  • This dish keeps well in the refrigerator for 2 days and 15 days to a month in the freezer.
  • You can use Peanuts or other seeds like sunflower, pumpkin seeds in place of sesame seeds.
  • Nutrition values are my rough estimates. Please feel free to use your calculator if you rely on them for your diet.
