Curry Leaves Chutney (कढीपत्ता चटणी )

Chutney can be made, wet or dry. Chutney come in so many varieties, here in US wet chutney's are more popular than dry one. Wet ones are made with combination of vegetables, fruits, vinegar and different spices.

The recipe that I am sharing with you today is a dry one. This recipe is great when you have extra Curry leaves on hand and don't know what to do with it. It goes well with Rice, Parathas or Rotis. Overall it's a great condiment to have on your dinner table.It is easy to make and come together in minutes.


1 1/2 Cup Curry leaves
1/3 Cup Sesame seeds
1/3 Cup Dry shredded coconut
1/3 cup Powdered Peanuts
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp Sugar
Salt as per taste


Wash and pat dry Curry leaves. Fry them in 1 tsp of oil until crisp. Dry roast shredded coconut and sesame seeds until light brown.

Grind together all the ingredients except peanut powder in a mixer. Lastly add powdered peanuts and grind it once again. I like a little coarse texture for this chutney, but you can make fine texture if you want.
