Coconut – Almond Chutney / Kobbari – Badam pachadi is a Vegan+Glutenfree South Indian chutney / dip that can be made instantly without any prep.
This is my latest try, which is a combo that I had never heard or read about. At times when we are short of some ingredient in a recipe, we just tend to mix and match with what is available in our pantry. So, this might be taken as one such chutney recipe which I happened to make with an instant thought.
It tasted very apt with steaming hot idli(s) / steamed lentil based patties (Recipe link⇒ Idli ) that I made over the weekend brunch. Along with the podi / spice powder ( Recipe link⇒ Moringa/Drumstick Leaves Spice Powder/Munagaku Podi )
