Coconut chutney- best and super delicious

With Peanut, coconut chutney is very delicious. This is a very popular chutney from Southern India. I can’t stress enough about the importance of a good chutney or a delicious sambar, on making the whole idli/dosa eating, a good experience. I love preparing different chutney’s.

Coconut chutney is a unique mix of creamy nuttiness, spicy tempering, and fresh curry leaves flavors.

This peanut coconut chutney goes well with Idli ,Dosa, vada, upma , rice or any snack of your choice. Keep it refrigerated for a long shelf life.

Yum and super tasty

Chutney is love

Best with Idli and Dosa
