My family just loves coconut chutney. In general, when we go to restaurants and order dosa or idli, we would prefer coconut chutney as an accompaniment. I have tried several coconut chutneys, but this one has the best taste. It matches the exact taste of the hotel chutney. Try once and you’ll know. Thank you Sailuskitchen for sharing this recipe.
