Amla Dhaniya Chutney-Healthy And Refreshing

Chutney is such an important part of Indian cuisine. There are many varieties of chutney. Chutneys may be either wet or dry. In the past, chutneys were ground with a mortar and pestle, these days’ electric blenders or food processors are used as labour-saving alternatives to the traditional stone grinding.

So here I am back with another chutney recipe. This time I added amla also known as indian gooseberries to the normal coriander chutney. Amla is the most potent natural source of Vitamin C. In fact, this tiny fruit has as much Vitamin C as two oranges. Just like most berries, it is low in sugar and has high fiber content, making it an ideal daily fruit for almost anyone. 

The tanginess of alma and spicy green chillies when added to coriander leaves makes it a perfect balance of taste. Let us see the recipe now.


Amla/Indian gooseberries 5
Dhainya/Coriander leaves 2 cups
Hari mirch/green chilli 4
Water As needed
Hing/asofetida 1 pinch
Salt To taste


1.   Wash coriander leaves and chop them.
2.   Cut amla properly and remove the seeds from it.
3.   Wash green chillies and cut them.
4.   In a blender blend all the ingredients’ to form course paste.

  • Amount of water totally depends on the consistency you want.
  • To bring more flavor mint leaves/pudhina can also be added.
Serving Ideas:

  • Spicy and tangy chutney-surely to refresh your taste buds.
