South Indian breakfast whether it is idli, uttapam, dosa or upma is not complete without chutney on side. And coconut based chutneys are most popular amongst all.

There are many different variations in making coconut chutney e.g. plainwith red chillieswith coriander leaveswith mint leaves, with garlic and so on.

Today’s version is with curd. It adds slight sour taste to the chutney. Adjust the amount of chilies as per your liking spiciness. I prefer mild so I have added only 2 small chilies.

Whenever I am making south Indian meal or breakfast, I try to make different chutney each and every time. So we do not get bored of having same old things. Variations in side dishes show some excitement to the whole meal.

For the convenience, I always use the frozen coconut. For that I let it defrost on the counter top. And I use the hot or warm water while grinding. This helps in making smooth chutney even if using frozen.

I usually make large batch of chutneys and I freeze the leftovers for later use. This becomes very handy on busy weekdays.
