Nariyal Ki Chutney is a chutney recipe to be taken with breakfast recipes such as idli or dosa or vada or uttapam or any south Indian breakfast recipe. Nariyal is coconut in English and here I have used the freshly grated coconut to make the chutney. Do not use dry coconut or desiccated coconut as it does not give out the flavor which nariyal gives.
Also check out my coconut chutney recipe for idli dosa...
South Indian breakfast recipes are incomplete without chutneys and there are many many chutneys that go well with idli or dosa or anything.
The nariyal itself can be used to make many chutneys like coconut chutney, coriander coconut chutney, red coconut chutney etc.. and here I have posted the recipe of chutney which has ingredients like ginger, roasted chana dal, coriander, tamarind piece etc...
The chutney can be made with many variations and with time would love to write down as many south indian chutneys as possible for my blog readers to try them out.
South India is very popular for serving chutneys and here, chutneys are not only served with idli or dosa but they are served with main meals as one of the main accompaniment in south indian thalis or veg thalis.
The chutnys range from sweet taste to sour taste to pachadi or pickles and every dish is unique and tastes amazing...
Chutneys are usually made with common ingredients like coconut, tomato, peanuts, onions or sesame seeds. These ingredients lift up the flavors of the chutneys by adding few spices.
The nariyal ki chutney which I shall be sharing can be eaten with idlis, dosas, vada, poori, pesarattu, uttapam and sambar recipes. This chutney recipe does not taste good with rice or roti.
