Coconut chutney is a South Indian spicy chutney-side-dish and condiment, a speciality common in North Malabar. This is a coconut stew mixed with other species and served with Idli, Dosai and even with cooked rice. It is made with two methods: liquid and solid. Generally, liquid Coconut Chutney is served with Idli & Dosai, whereas the solid one, locally known as Uruttu Chammanthi, is served with cooked rice at lunch and dinner.
Coconut Chutney is very good accompaniment to breakfast dishes like Dosas and Idlies.
