Coconut Chutney is must when we are having Idli or Dosa. Else we can’t feel that we are having South Indian delicacy. When I was in Canada, we used to bought bottle preserved chutney. But, here in India I can get fresh coconut and so learned coconut chutney. I even make lots of variations to this chutney each time.
This time I made coconut chutney with yogurt and roasted chana dal. We can put tamarind, urad dal or you can make green coconut chutney by lots of coriander leaves. I have made Coriander chutney, Curry leaves chutney , mint -coriander chutney many times. Coconut chutney is a South Indian spicy chutney-side-dish. This is a coconut stew mixed with other spices and served with Idli, Dosa, vada and even with cooked rice. In Marathi, we say olya khobryachi chutney means wet coconut chutney.
I made Idli this Sunday, with Sambhar and coconut chutney , the meal was complete. My kids enjoyed Idli lot. My one and half year old also grab on Idli. Check on my post – How to make Soft and Spongy Idli.
