Author Notes

Quick cilantro chutney is pure flavor, no embellishments. Just grind cilantro, ginger, chile peppers and lime juice together into a fine paste. Slightly runny, this chutney is perfect as a topping sauce over grain bowls, your morning eggs, savory oatmeal and beans of any kind. —Annada Rathi

To some people's frustration, I like to talk about food before cooking, while cooking, while eating and of course after eating.
