This Coconut chutney is a basic chutney recipe that I make quite often . This is so great with hot idlis and dosas. My family’s favourite chutney . This is a very traditional basic South Indian side dish that is usually made everyday for tiffins. This is perfect not only with idli –dosas but also with poori , pongal , chapattis and with rice too. Before marriage I ask my mom to do chutney with red chillies but my hubby likes chutneys with only green chillies. My taste too differed, I am always sticking to green chillies now-a-days . I like sesame oil for tempering as the flavour is so good but you can use any oil you wish . I know this chutney is quite a usual preparation at most of the houses but I am posting this simple recipe for beginners and some of my North Indian friends who keep on asking me for the recipe. Now off to the chutney preparation…
While tempering you can add red chillies for extra spiciness.
You can add a small piece of ginger / garlic to make a flavourful version.
Instead of curry leaves , corriander leaves can be used while grinding. I love the curry leaves flavour so I stick to that.
You can even replace green chillies with red chillies for a colourful chutney . But up to me this version best suits as a side to rasam rice / mixed rice.
