In general, the South Indian coconut chutney which we commonly see in restaurants is the white chutney very low in spice. And its not suitable with rice, roti, paratha etc.

So to fill that gap, here is a spicy version. This chutney is spiced up with red chillies, that goes well not only with any breakfast but even with rice too.

Before starting to cook, don’t forget to see the Tips which I mentioned at the end.
