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. ... “Pudina Coconut Chutney | Mint Chutney | Chutney Recipes”

Ever bored of grating loads of coconut to make chutney, trust me I always feel bored to grate coconut. So you know who my go to person is to grate coconut at home(you guessed it). But sometimes you might also run out of coconut or have very little fresh coconut left. And even if you make coconut chutney you need to make 2-3 varieties with different spice levels for different people at home! So here is one solution to fix all your coconut chutney woes, curd chutney or dahi chutney.

And you are saved the trouble of actually making 2-3 types of chutneys to adjust the spice. Everybody can just dig into this and enjoy the same chutney. ... “Dahi Chutney | Curd Chutney | Chutney Recipes”
