Pudina Coconut Chutney

I have photoshot many chutney recipes and they always get hidden away and somehow get neglected. But as I have mentioned in my previous chutney posts, these are very essential condiments in a meal. Chutneys cleanse you palate and let’s face it, without chutney, no dosa or idli would taste good (yes including chutney pudi/powder). So here it is, pudina coconut chutney or pudina kayi chutney.
All you need is a handful of fresh pudina leaves/mint to make this pudina coconut chutney really flavourful. I love the flavours of this chutney as it leaves a refreshing flavour and cleanses you palate. Just a few ingredients from the store cupboard and you have a tasty chutney to serve with idli or dosa.

I love eating idli with this pudina coconut chutney. Easy to make, idlis turn into something special with this chutney! Remember to use freshly grated coconut to get a good chutney. Adjust chillies as per you taste as per usual ‘chutney’ rules. When kids are eating add only a small piece of chilli or skip it. Try more chutney recipes from FOI, seemebadanekayi chutney, methi stems chutney, heerekayi sippe chutney, coconut chutney, curd chutney etc!
