Coconut Chutney

by thecurrytheory

This is another great chutney to try at home. If you ever have had any South Indian food like Masala Dosa or Idli sambar or Mendu Vada, this delicious chutney is the best accompaniment with it. Everyone in the south of India probably everywhere else in Asia makes this chutney. Coconut is a huge part of Indian food. It’s one of my favorites because you can eat it as a side with Pakoras and samosas too! It tastes so yum because of the fresh frozen coconut in it. You can buy a frozen fresh coconut at any Indian or Asian food grocery. You have to give it a try. super easy to make.
