    • The same procedure suits for Mint leaves too.. 
    • Don’t add urad dhal and coconut much.. they both added to this chutney to remove the exact coriander bitterness. 
    • If you like to add some mustard and urad dhal in tempering then add it to the hot oil, i prefer a smooth chutney here, so i didn’t added.. 
    • Refrigerate the chutney after use.
    • Store in air tight container.. 
    • Use Dry spoon to take out the chutney.. 
    • Adjust the Spice level and tamarind to your taste buds..
