Coriander Peanut Chutney


Lots of things have been happening this weekend past month. The daughter secured admission in a nice school far from where we stay. That required a move in to the new locality which incidentally is close to the husband’s work place. Since everything happened kind of last minute, I have been running around like a headless chicken trying to manage 20 things at once. We moved in few days ago and I am now typing this buried under a huge pile of stuff.

Only when you move out do you realise how much stuff you have. I guess it should take me another week to burrow my way of this huge mountain of ridiculousness. I tried hunting for my camera and laptop but in vain. So this post is only through the phone. Do bear with me.

This was our snack today. Yummy kuzhi paniyaram with this spicy coriander and peanut chutney. I tossed in whatever I could find in the kitchen but it turned out nicely.

Makes one small bowl


1 small bunch fresh coriander

2 tbsp Peanuts, roasted

2 tbsp Fried onion

1-2 Green chillies

1″ Ginger, chopped



  • Add all the ingredients to the blender jar
  • Add water and blend to a coarse paste
  • Serve with your favourite snack
  • Enjoy!

    A great option with snadwhiches, parathas or everyday meal. I do not add peanuts will try next time.. must have the nutty flavour with peanuts,

    Congants on the move and the admission for the lil one! Shifing houses is a big task and like you said, we find things that we don’t even remember buying!!
    And this is one of our favorite chutney to go with soft pillowy idlis. I dont add fried onions though. Will try your version soon Sowmya.

    Wow another variety of chutney for me to try out. I would love to try this in my vegetable sandwich. Yum.

  6. I can understand as I go through this every three or four years and I so dread it. This chutney with coriander and peanut is one flavourful side dish for paniyaram. The whole after looks so yum.

    Fried onion in green chutney is new to me. Good luck with the unpacking.

    I guess everything fell into place as it is closer to your daughter and husband to commute. Good luck with settling in the new home.

    I have never tried adding onions to this chutney. Makes a great dip.
