CORIANDER COCONUT CHUTNEY
Coconut Chutney ground with fresh coriander is so DELICIOUS !!! Pairing it with idli, vada, dosa or rava khaman will surely elevate your regular breakfast to another level.
This chutney gets ready in a jiffy and tastes absolutely yummmmmm.....!!!
The recipe is nothing too fancy and no exact measurements , you can alter the ratio of ingredients to suit your taste, basic ingredients remaining the same. It is made by grinding coriander leaves, fresh coconut, ginger , green chilies , roasted peanuts along with salt, lemon juice and water. You can also add roasted chana instead of roasted peanuts. I personally like the flavour of peanut more in this chutney. The tempering of the chutney with mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves and whole red chilies makes it more flavoursome.
The chutney tastes best when freshly ground however it stays good in refrigerator up to two days. I recommend to make any coconut based chutney in small batches as it tends to spoil soon especially in hot and humid weather.
Earlier I used to make the traditional coconut chutney to serve with idli and dosa. Ever since I made this coriander coconut chutney I have become a big fan of it. I love to give my aloo sandwiches a twist by applying a generous layer of coriander coconut chutney on bread slices. Try it out this way and I am sure you will love it.
