delicious and common of the
chutneys. Second, I gave the list of
gram, tamarind, green
chilies, coriander and, of course, coconut gratings.
gave the steps on how to make coconut chutney, which I have detailed
below for you.
Coconut chutney is a good side dish for
a variety of food. For instance, this chutney is
must-have for rice idlis, dosas, urad vadas and pakoras. It
used for rice roti
Dishes like puliyogare, pongal, ottu
or home-made rice noodles are among the food that taste better with
coconut chutney. It

will be yummy.
The color of the coconut chutney depends on the quantity of coriander
leaves you use. More of such leaves will make this side dish greener.
If you season the coconut chutney with oil, mustard seeds, urad and
channa dal and curry leaves, then the chutney will be tastier and be a
great side dish for hot
rice or idlis.
