COCONUT YOGURT CHUTNEY

                                                    Busy weekdays I always end up making coconut chutney for idly and dosa as it is quick and easy. My kids are not a fan of coconut chutney. So, I always make peanut chutney as well. Few days back while I was speaking with my mom she reminded me of  yogurt coconut chutney.  I totally forgot what it tasted like. As, it is similar to coconut chutney I made it the next day. It, was wonderful. The very first bite of chutney reminded me of what my mom was hinting me about. Luckily my kids loved it.  Addition of yogurt to the chutney takes it to the next level. If you are looking for something different , quick and easy . Do try this chutney and flatter your crowd.
