Whether you are eating sambar dosa or rava idli or uttapam, unless you don't douse your every bite into a bowl full of creamy coconut chutney, you don't get the high of relishing a good meal. Coconut chutney is not just delicious, it is also super healthy. It is made of freshly grated coconut that carries immense benefits for us.

Here is a chutney made out of mashed grated coconut. To complement the distinct flavours of south Indian meals, this chutney is mixed with a number of other foods and spices to create a striking taste that any side dish should provide. Chana dal and urad dal are also blended, mashed and added to the chutney, levelling up its protein quotient. Spices like ginger (adrak), asafoetida (hing), combined with mustard seeds and curry leaves creates a mish-mash of diverse flavours with different levels of undertones.
