Chutney 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.

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 Easy 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.
