Coconut Chutney is a classic South Indian side dish for breakfast dishes. Traditionally, we make coconut chutney with fresh coconut and some other spices or vegetables. But we can also make this traditional chutney without fresh coconut. I have replaced the fresh coconut with desiccated coconut and used warm water to grind. This desiccated coconut chutney is a great alternative when you don’t have fresh coconut. If you are looking for more chutney recipes then check the below recipes.
