White Coconut Chutney

White Coconut Chutney

Adjust quantity of water according to make it thick or diluted. Avoid addition of green or red chilly if you are making coconut paste. Avoid dry red chilly in tempering if you are making white coconut chutney. Consume fresh chutney immediately or refrigerate it and use it for up to 3 days.

It’s hard to imagine south Indian dishes like dosa, idli, vada, etc being served without this chutney. However its use is not just limited to it but it can also be served as an accompaniment in lunch or dinner along with paratha, curry, steamed rice, dal tadka etc.
