Super Simple Celery Chutney

Celery Chutney is one of the simple, quick and delicious 4 ingredient recipe with celery. A condiment served with South Indian breakfast dishes like Idli and Dosa.

Generally, celery is eaten as raw, and it will be served with a dip along with the appetizers here in the United States. It is crunchy and loaded with tonnes of fiber.

Vegetable chutneys are very popular in South Indian cuisine. But celery is not an Indian vegetable, there are not many Indian recipes using celery. I came to know this super simple recipe from my friend, and it turned out very good for the 1st time. This Easy Celery Chutney goes well with Idli and Dosa, and rice or roti. It also goes perfect as a side with your bread.

This ultra-tasty chutney is a perfect blend of hot, spicy, and sour with the beautiful aroma of celery. You can add a hint of tamarind juice or lemon juice also for more sourness apart from tomatoes. I feel this lip smacking chutney tastes very similar to green tomato chutney.

Generally, South Indian chutney is spicy, unlike western countries which are normally sweet based. Chutneys are normally served with breakfast dishes and also with rice.
