Coconut Coriander Chutney Recipe (for Idli, Dosa)

Coconut Coriander Chutney Side dish for Idli-Dosa
I like coconut coriander chutney in all the coconut chutney I make, I simply love the flavors of coriander leaves in coconut chutney.  Simple and flavorful coconut cilantro chutney goes well with idli, dosa or even vada, bonda.  Like most of the recipe this simple chutney too has variations you can add mint leaves for added color and taste, adding a pinch of jaggery balance the flavors. Add garlic if you love your garlic and if you don't like skip the tamarind so you see there are plenty of options here.

We can play with it in this chutney as per our wish or just to bring little freshness in the same old recipe try a change here and there if not stick with the authentic tasted old way as below, the option is yours.
