coconut curd chutney recipe, coconut curd chutney

coconut curd chutney recipe for idli, dosa, uttapam or vada. this is another variation of coconut chutney which i often make along with south indian tiffin breakfast or snacks.

this chutney is preferred by my husband because it has his favorite ingredient curd/yogurt in it. the yogurt gives a slight sour taste to the chutney. this chutney taste very good with idli and dosa or plain uttapam. it can also go well with medu vada and onion or tomato uttapam. but the best combination is with idli, dosa and plain uttapam.

other variations of coconut chutney which i have already shared are sesame coconut chutney, mint coconut chutney, cilantro coconut chutney, red chili coconut chutney and coconut garlic chutney. in fact you can make many varieties of coconut chutney to along with your favorite south indian snacks. it also depends upon your taste.

i served this coconut curd chutney with foxtail millet/navane dosa and the combo was good.

    Just a tip. Chutney with garlic becomes more tastier. I know few from south don’t prefer either onions or garlic . But definitely makes it yummier. One thing surprised me , yoghurt.. this doesn’t make it authentic south indian chutney. Instead coriander makes it perfect .
    just a suggestion for readers. Foodies love all kinda tastes .. you can try.

    Hello Dassana,

    In this coconut curd chutney recipe, in the ingredients section, you have mentioned about chana dal which is missing in the instructions part. Can you please tell at which stage is this dal supposed to be added.
