Coriander-Gooseberry-Yogurt-Chutney

#CorianderGooseberryYogurtChutney [ #KothamalliNellikkaiThyirChutney ] : During winter season vegetable markets are filled with fresh #corianderleaves. Generally coriander is used in small quantities for garnishing a dish and mainly it is added to the dish for its aroma. It is also a rich source of vitamins and minerals, especially Vitamin C and iron.
Coriander should be included in our daily diet in large quantities to get its valuable nutrients.
Gooseberry is also one of the important sources of vitamin C.
So I have tried a chutney along with nellikkai [ gooseberry - amla ] and curd.
Here comes the recipe.
