Cilantro Chutney – otherwise known as Green Chutney or Dhaniya Chutney is a classic condiment found in Indian meals. It's very green, slightly spicy, and with a fantastic fresh flavor. I've used cilantro as the only herb in my version, but you could also add some mint leaves (this would make it a Dhaniya Pudhina Chutney!).
The recipe is naturally low in carbohydrates, is quick to make, and it gets even better if you prepare it a day or two in advance of requiring it!

How to Make Low Carb Cilantro Chutney
To make the chutney, add fresh cilantro (leaves and stalks) to a food processor, together with some water, garlic paste, ginger paste, coconut flour, lemon juice, and a chopped green chili (I used a serrano pepper). You could of course use fresh ginger and/or garlic – but I always have the pastes on hand so it's more convenient!
Blend until smooth, and taste for seasoning. As salt as required, and blend again.
Transfer the chutney to a serving dish, then cover and store in the fridge until required.
