Green Coconut Chutney or the Curry Leaves Chutney is another delicious chutney that can be served with idli or dosa. As I promised yesterday when I posted the Beetroot Chutney, here I am with this green coconut chutney or the curry leaves chutney. I had made both the chutneys on the same day and hence the posts have come back to back.
The main ingredient which gives out the unique taste in this chutney is the curry leaves. For best results make this green coconut chutney with freshly grated coconut. In hindi the curry leaves are known as kadi patta and in tamil it is called as karuva pillai. Curry leaves are definitely an integral part of the South Indian cuisine. You would find a lot of tadka or tempering in various dishes done with the curry leaves. There is abundance of goodness in the curry leaves. And the leaves are even boiled with coconut oil and applied to hair believing that it prevents greying of the hair.
All we need to do this green coconut chutney or the curry leaves chutney recipe is grind together all the ingredients and give some tadka or tempering to it, much like the Coconut Dal Chutney or the coconut chutney.
