Coconut Chutney Recipe | How to Make Coconut Chutney

Coconut chutney is a must have accompaniment for South Indian breakfast, be it idli, dosa, vada or any other menu.

I usually prepare this chutney with freshly grated coconuts as it gives a creamier taste. There are many variations to this coconut chutney with varying ingredients like coriander leaves, dried red chillies, cumin seeds, cashews, ginger, garlic etc. and you can slightly tweak the recipe.

You can also adjust the consistency of this chutney to your liking by adding little more water and  making it a bit thinner.

These days, I usually pack this chutney for my kid's snack box along with few idlis and hence I usually end up making a thick variety.
