Afghani Cilantro Chutney

I just made Afghan style Cilantro Chutney and it turned out amazing, I looked at many recipes on the Internet and then selected my ingredients as I had a specific taste in mind, taste of the Chutney that they serve in a local Afghan restaurant.
I took 1 cup Cilantro leaves (we call it coriander in Pakistan) , 2 cloves of garlic, 2 green chilies, salt, 1 tbsp walnuts and 1/2 cup white vinegar and blended everything really well in an electric food processor. I didn't add sugar that was also suggested in some recipes.

After refrigerating it for 3 hours it looked and tasted almost like the chutney that I love to eat in a local Afghan restaurant. It was not as watery as that Chutney is but taste was really close.

I'm one of those people who adore the flavor of cilantro so thanks for this Maryamn. It sounds like a kind of pesto to me, without the oil. I assume you mean 1 cup of packed cilantro?
I'll be giving this a try for sure, and thank you.

A friend of mine from India makes a delish cilantro chutney. He just doesn't have a recipe! I made fiddlehead fern pesto last week. I roasted the walnuts and the fiddleheads. I like to add roasted/toasted nuts to these sorts of things.

Thanks Kayelle, I used fresh Cilantro leaves and roughly chopped those and those roughly chopped leaves were approximately 1 cup in quantity.
