Not sure I would call this a chutney I would say more like a cilantro pesto. It was good though! I served it over some Curried grilled chicken. It was a perfect match! The tomato sauce seemed like a strange ingredient in this but its not! Worked right in well! Thanks so much!

I liked this recipe, I used it on top of chicken and put 2 Tbls. in my chicken flavored rice (to kinda tie everything together) and the rice turned out being the best tasting part of the meal.

I needed a Chutney for the apple peanut spinach salad and 1/2'd this recipe. It worked great and I'd make it again. I find it's consistancy is more like a pesto though.

I tripled the chile and finished a grilled chicken masala with it. Lots of heat and good flavor. Instead of sauce use 2 tomatoes and 1/2 the ginger for a great tortilla dip.

I found this was missing something, I added a pinch of salt and about a tsp of sugar,

I peeked at your recipe to use in my summertime quinoa dish--turned the same old quinoa recipe completely upside down. So delicious!
