coriander coconut chutney (raw cilantro side dish)

DSC01771

I love to have cilantro greens without cooking it. One of the best ways to have it is as a raw chutney.

Cilantro is abundant in vitamins: A, C, K, minerals: iron, magnesium and calcium. It has antibiotic, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, heavy metal detox properties. Regular consumption in raw form is very good for health.

A simple raw, saatvik (no onion, no garlic) chutney can be prepared in combination with coconut, green chilly. Is great with idli, dosa, upma or any other savory snack.

I am submitting ths recipe to the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck 4 over at the blog Unrefined Vegan.
