Coriander Coconut Chutney

Coriander coconut chutney is a lovely healthy side dish for multiple dishes like dosa, idli, parathas etc. This chutney can also be used as a spread for sandwiches. It is very quick to make and can be refrigerated for 3 days. I have made this coriander chutney with coconut to make it creamier but you can also make it without it.
