Coconut-Coriander Chutney

In most south Indian households, dosas and idlis rule the breakfast menu. Fluffy idlis and ghee rich dosas are enjoyed the most when accompanied with a nice spicy chutney. Chutneys are an integral part of every south Indian breakfast.

The common sight in our households during the mornings are the aroma of the dosas being cooked or the idlis being steamed and not to forget the whirring sound of the mixers grinding the yummy chutneys.

Today,  Food-Filment presents to you the most common chutney that you get in most of the restaurants : the coconut-coriander chutney 🙂

Shredded Coconut (fresh / frozen) – 1 cup

Coriander leaves – 1/4 of a small bunch
