Coconut Chutney in 5 mins | Nariyal Chutney Recipe Video | Chutney for Dosa & Idli

Hey guys, here is yummy Coconut Chutney which is an accompaniment for the Neer Dosa recipe which I posted yesterday. Please try this yummy chutney and don't forget to like, comment, share & SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and delicious recipes.

This is an easy and simple chutney which can be made in 5 minutes. All you need to do is blend some desiccated coconut with green chillies, ginger, salt, little tamarind or lemon juice and the secret ingredient is the roasted chana dal which gives a lovely nutty flavour which will make you eat it more & more.

Chutney cannot be complete without the tempering of mustard seeds, urad dal, red chilli and some curry leaves. Please try it. I would love to hear your comments.
