We all love South Indian dishes and the different varieties of chutneys served with these dishes are interesting. I remember my visit to “Chutneys” in Hyderabad and Waao ! they serve five-six variations of chutney to relish with the South Indian dishes. This Green Coriander Coconut Chutney Recipe was tried first time due to unavailability of few ingredients at home. Earlier I used to make only the traditional coconut chutney with idli or dosa which is also served in almost all the restaurants or anna’s stall but now depending upon time and availability of ingredients I love to give it some twist like adding tomatoes and onions. The tomato onion coconut chutney recipe is already on the blog, click the link for the recipe.
This time I made Green Coriander Coconut chutney. It’s very simple to make and can be prepared quickly. You can serve it with appam, dosa, Uttapam or idllies. To make this green coriander chutney all you need is fresh coriander leaves, coconut, green chilies, curd and garlic pod which is optional. You can add tempering or you can skip it if you want to keep it oil free as I have skipped it.
I have also shared the recipe of tomato-onion coconut chutney, Rawa idli and spicy sambhar on the blog. I am a big dosa fan and if you follow me on Instagram @savorytales you will definitely be knowing this. If you give it a try, do share your feedback and comment about this recipe.
Indian meals are incomplete without chutneys and pickles. So many varieties of chutney are made in India. The variations can be sweet, spicy or tangy. Green coriander chutney or Dhaniya chutney is one of my favorite as it compliments many dishes such as chaat, pakoras, samosas, vada, sandwiches or other snack items too. This chutney is really easy to make and during winters you can make and store it in the refrigerator. It can last for a week easily. Do check the recipe of egg chops and khaman dhokla with which I love to savor this chutney.
I have posted the recipe of Egg chops and Moong Dal Bhajiya which tastes amazing with this green coriander chutney. You can make this in large quantity and keep it in the refrigerator in airtight container. This one is a no onion and garlic recipe, but you can add one or two cloves of garlic if you want as per your taste. You can also check out the Coconut chutney with tomatoes recipe which goes very well with South Indian dishes.
Try out this simple green coriander chutney or dhaniya chutney. And do share with me the interesting variations of chutney that you make.
Raitas and Papads compliment the Indian meal in a nice way. Raitas go very well with Biryanis and Pulavs or even with the full Indian meal. Recently, I tried the beetroot raita because I was totally in love with the color of this raita by gazing at the pictures of it. It is nutritious, tasty and very simple to make. Try it yourself and you will also fall in love with it’s color and taste for sure.
Mint yogurt dip tastes totally amazing. You can enjoy this with any appetizer (tikka , cutlets or parathas) as it gives a good refreshing twist to the regular chutney or even you can have it with any meal as raita.
