The Coconut Chutney has a well-rounded flavour that goes well with most variants of Idlis / Dosas / Appe , be it plain, veggie-topped, or more exotic options like Rava Idli or Ragi Dosa.

If you have grated coconut ready on hand, then it takes just minutes to prepare the coconut chutney, which makes it a popular accompaniment for breakfast.

You can vary the amount of green chillies according to your taste. And, if you are serving this as the only accompaniment and want a bit of tang in it, you can also blend in a ½ inch piece of deseeded tamarind or 1 tsp of tamarind pulp.
