In my regular Tamil online magazine, there was an article with the recipe of Celery chutney. I got intrigued by the recipe , an Indian version of Celery that looked too good. I made few changes to the original recipe for my taste and it turned out YUM πŸ™‚ Finally I could finish off all the celery stalks staying in the fridge πŸ™‚ I can have this even as a spread in bread πŸ˜› So here it is



Celery : a big bunch chopped to small pieces

Cilantro leaves : few stalks

Red Onion: 1/4 of a large chopped

Ginger : 1/4 inch piece chopped

Garlic : 1 pods chopped

Green Chili : 1

Lemon Juice : 1 tablespoon or Tamarind : 1 small piece ( I used Tamarind)

Salt : 1 teaspoon

Oil : 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin Seeds : 1/4 teaspoon

Mustard Seeds : 1/4 teaspoon

Urad dal : 1/4 teaspoon

Curry Leave : few


  • Heat oil in a pan. When hot add the mustard seed, urad dal, cumin seeds. When they crackle add the curry leaves.
  • Now add the onions ,green chili, garlic and saute till translucent.
  • Next add the chopped celery. Saute for 3 to 4 mins. Add the lemon juice or tamarind piece.
  • Finally add cilantro leaves, ginger and saute for 2 mins and stop cooking. Let it cool.
  • After coolingΒ blend it to a fine paste ( to chutney consistency)
  • Serve with Idli/Dosa πŸ™‚
