coconut garlic chutney recipe

coconut garlic chutney recipe to go along with your favorite south indian snacks like idli, dosa, vada, mysore bonda and so on.

chuntey and sambar are two apt accompaniments for idli and dosa. if you are also fond of trying different flavors of chutneys like me, then you can make many varieties of coconut chutney for south indians snacks apart from the classic coconut chutney which most of us love.

few chutney variations, i have already posted on the blog are – mint coconut chutney, coriander coconut chutneysesame coconut chutney, coconut garlic chutney and red chili coconut chutney.

like most chutney recipes, this coconut garlic chutney is also a simple and easy chutney which will not take much time to prepare. this chutney has tempering or tadka added to it. i have already posted another variation of making coconut garlic chutney which does not have tempering done towards the end.

with so many chutney recipes on the blog, you can guess, how much i am fond of chutneys, especially coconut chutney ! in the pics the chutney is served with ragi (finger millet) dosa.

    Hi, Thanks for all your wonderful recipes. For this coconut chutney, can I use desiccated or dried grated coconut instead?
