Coconut and Coriander chutney

A good chutney complements many Indian snacks like pakoras, wadas and dhoklas. Today I’m sharing my mom’s recipe of coconut chutney which she normally use in making vegetable sandwich. This chutney completes many other snacks in our house like urad dal bhajiyas and idlis. She tempers the chutney with oil, mustard seed, cumin seeds and curry leaves when it is served with snacks. Tempering adds a very nice flavour to the chutney.

Coconut and Coriander Chutney:


Coconut (cut into small pieces) – 1 n 1/2 cup or half coconut
