Red Coconut Chutney, or red chili coconut chutney is spicy coconut chutney made with red chili and onion, a variation from normal coconut chutney. Red coconut chutney makes great side dish with idli, dosa, adai, paniyaram and if you like spicy chutney then you will sure love this one too. It's always challenging to think what to make as quick side with idli or dosa other than usual coconut chutney, peanut chutney those days you can try this easy chutney recipe.

Using Byadige Red Chili variety adds wonderful color plus spiciness to this chutney if you don't find Byadige variety then it's find use your regular red chili, I make this chutney quite regularly as it's spicy plus the coconut makes wonderful combination. Normally onion is used in red coconut chutney but if you wish you can skip onion some days for variation too, also you can soak the red chili and grind some times instead of frying and then making chutney. Make your own variations each time to give this beautiful chutney new taste :)
