South Indian snacks are usually served with Sambhar and a range of chutneys. While coconut chutney is a staple, this is usually supported by a spicier or tangier chutney like coriander, tomato or onion chutney.

This Coconut Coriander Green Chutney is an all-rounder that combines wonderfully with idli, dosa and vada.

While coconut is the main essence of the chutney, the greens - coriander and spinach - play a very important role in perking up the flavour and colour.

Garlic also works magic with the taste. You can serve this with normal Dosa or interesting variants like Poha Dosa or Rava Dosa. This green chutney can also be used to make Mysore Masala Dosa.

How to make Dosa Green Chutney

  1. Take a mixer jar and add the grated coconut to it. Coconut is the main essence of this chutney, in fact, most South Indian chutneys. It gives the necessary texture and thickness to the chutney. Always use freshly grated coconut for best results.
  2. Add shredded spinach to it. You can chop it as well. If you are in a hurry and don’t have spinach in your pantry, just increase the quantity of coriander. They provide the additional bright green color to the green chutney recipe.
  3. Add the coriander. Rinse it in water and chop it before adding to the mixer jar. This ingredient is a must to the necessary green colour of the chutney.
  4. Add roasted chana dal. Most vendors term it is as daria. This is necessary to lend thickness and bind the chutney well.
  5. Add the green chillies. Wash them before chopping and adding to the jar. This can be adjusted as per your taste preference.
  6. Then peel and roughly chop the garlic and add it to the jar.Add freshly chopped garlic rather than garlic paste.
  7. Finally add salt as per your taste.
  8. Add 4 tbsp of water and close the lid of the jar.
  9. Grind till smooth.
  10. Remove the chutney from the jar and serve or use as required. Ensure you keep it refrigerated till use. 
  11. Spread on a sada dosa to make Green Mysore Dosa.
