That’s what I call it!
You can make new dishes with leftover food in several ways. Like making an omelet out of the veggies, soup/pasta with meat, fried rice with boiled rice, etc. Otherwise, you can use the leftovers to top a pizza, fill a sandwich, quesadilla or burrito, or make a simple salad with. But, what about the barely touched chutneys you don’t want to go to waste? Are you aware that you can make a whole new dish with it?
Here is an idea for you! If you have green chutney lying in your fridge, use it to make this yummy yogurt & coriander chutney chicken.
1 tsp cumin seeds
8 curry leaves
1 large onion finely chopped, pureed (boil, cool and grind) is better
3 tbsp cooking cream, or according to thickness required – You can buy it here
For the marinade:
800 grams chicken
1 cup yoghurt
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp pepper powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala – You can buy it here
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp green chilli paste – you can skip this if the chutney has enough chili
2 to 3 tbsp leftover coriander chutney
½ tsp chaat masala – You can buy it here
Salt per taste (Tip – Remember that chaat masala and coriander chutney would have enough salt so taste them and then measure accordingly)

Karen was born in Kuwait and raised in Mangalore, India. Though she loved eating, she never entered a kitchen until her mid-twenties when she passionately began cooking for her baby sister and boyfriend (husband now). Till then, cooking was probably not even on her list of passions. But after a lot of experimentation and kitchen accidents, Karen now finds cooking therapeutic. She believes it is an art that gives her a sense of satisfaction when she prepares dishes for her friends and family, especially her little one.
Her dishes are usually simple and include easy-to-find ingredients. Her goal is to provide busy moms with tried and tested quick recipe options. So, in the midst of running around after your kids, cleaning boogers off your clothes or simply trying to steal some time for a bubble bath, you can still prepare these easy but delicious meals for your loved ones as well as yourself.
