How long does coriander chutney last:

I often make green chutney at home and store it in the refrigerator. Since this chutney is made with coconut, it can't be stored in the fridge for a long time. Generally, it stays fresh for 3 days if the climate is cold and stays good for 2 days in a tropical environment. It can be kept outside for half a day.

How to store coriander chutney:

I prefer to store Coriander chutney in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator. You can also add a tsp of lemon juice to preserve the natural greenish hue. Lemon also helps to stay fresh for 2 days in the fridge.

Can I freeze coriander coconut chutney:

Yes, You can freeze the coconut coriander chutney. It can be made in large quantities and stored individually in a tiny ziplock pouch. You can freeze them for a month or so.
