Recipe Green Coriander Chutney Sanaa Animal Kingdom Lodge
2 cups cilantro, thoroughly washed and dried, large stems removed
½ cup mint leaves, thoroughly washed and dried
1/4 of one small jalapeno pepper, seeds and stem removed
2 teaspoons minced ginger, peeled
2 tablespoons, finely chopped yellow onion
Juice from one or two lemons, depending on the size (To taste)
1 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
Water as needed
Method of Preparation:
Combine Cilantro, Mint, Jalapeno, Ginger, Onion, Lemon Juice, Sugar and Salt in a food processor. On high speed quickly process into a paste. Remove the paste from the food processor and add water drop by drop to obtain a thick "pesto"-like consistency. This is served with the breads at Saana.
Cooks' note: Wash fresh herbs by submerging and agitating in ice water to allow the dirt to be removed while refreshing the leaves, dry thoroughly between sheets of paper towels before using.
