Coconut Green Chutney – South Indian style coconut chutney with the refreshing flavor of fresh mint and coriander.
Coconut Green Chutney is great as a side dish for idlis and dosas. This can also be served with rotis. You can play around with the ingredients of this chutney. Each time you change the quantity of the ingredients, you get a new taste. Fresh coconut when included in limited quantity is actually good for health. Added to that, mint, coriander and garlic aid in digestion. Try this flavorful Coconut Green Chutney with idlis/dosas and you will love its refreshing flavor.
I got this recipe from Habeeb Aunty, my aunty’s friend. I met her before 9 years. She is a great cook. She makes parotta with great ease. Later I tried to recollect the recipe and noted down in my diary. I am not sure if this is the exact method of her preparation but the taste is very close to her chutney. Each time I prepare this chutney, I am reminded of Habeeb aunty. I have changed the quantity of ingredients to suit my taste. Thank you aunty for this wonderful recipe.
