Chutneys are my go-to dish for Idlis and Dosas which are made almost everyday for Breakfast. We do prefer non-coconut chutneys like Apple Chutney,Mooli Chutney, Quick Tomato Chutney , another version of Coriander chutney without Coconut etc sometimes we do indulge in Coconut based Chutneys.
While we make the classic Coconut Chutney (which I am yet to blog !!), we also like this coriander flavoured Coconut chutney that goes very well with any South Indian breakfast – Idli / Dosa & uttappams / Pongal / Upma / sevai / Vada and my elder one likes it particularly.
Lets get to the recipe now. Do make this and let me know how you liked this twist. Totally Vegan and GF too, so picky eaters can make this regularly.
