Everybody will have tasted coconut chutney because it is that much popular and common chutney.  It is one of the special and main side dish especially Keralites. It is traditional recipe because it was the popular side dish for them. They were using grinding stone to make this chutney but now we are using grinder or mixer to make this and taste is also decreased. Grinding stone will give a variety taste.

This Coconut chutney is very good to health and it can use everyone especially those who needs healthy body. Coconut is the main item in Kerala so every house will have coconut and they are cultivating it for income and homely needs. We can make coconut chutney in different ways. There are a lot of different types of chutney. Mango chutney, fish chutney, dates chutney and tomato chutney are the main chutney but coconut chutney is very easiest recipe among them. I used very less ingredients to make this traditional chutney. My mother is preparing this chutney sometimes, I also followed the same method and used same ingredients. Keralites are using this chutney as the side dish with hot rice but also it can use with idly and dosa for breakfast. It is very healthy because I used very fresh coconut. Coconut chutney will be available in hotels or restaurants as the side dish for breakfast. This chutney is highly demanded item in everywhere. This chutney is having the mixed taste of ginger, curry leaves and dry red chilli. To get extra taste I roasted all ingredients in coconut oil.
