Cilantro Chutney

Cilantro Chutney

Cilantro is also known as coriander leaves. It is commonly used in our daily cooking has many health benefits. Dry coriander seeds are used in everyday cooking, but coriander leaves are known to lower blood sugar by stimulating the secretion of insulin.  For this reason it is called an anti-diabetic plant. This herb is also great for the skin.  For all of these health benefits, I add fresh dhania to my all recipes as a garnish. Though it is readily available in Indian stores, I highly recommend to make your own batch and eat it fresh or freeze it in a small container and use as needed.  This is great as sandwich spread or as a condiment with any meal.
