if you are having idli or dosa then a coconut chutney is kind of must with these snacks. i made this chutney with besan cheela made from besan (gram flour) and spices.

the green coconut chutney has a raw taste of cilantro. so, if you don’t like the raw taste of cilantro then you can fry the cilantro leaves in little oil and add them, while grinding the chutney.

the recipe for this green coconut chutney was taken from a cookbook it turned out well. i modified the quantities a lot and the method of preparation to suit us. the chutney can also be served with sandwiches, fritters or pakoras. stays good for 1-2 days in the refrigerator. the next day we had this chutney with potato bonda.
