coconut chutney

Coconut chutney recipe with step-wise pictures. Coconut chutney is a south Indian side dish for dosa, idli and venpongal. This is very simple and easy to make within two minutes. Though I make it often never thought of posting it. I usually don’t have fresh coconut at home so make it with dry coconut whenever needed. The taste of chutney with both the fresh and dry coconut is same.
