Coconut & Peanut Chutney

As soon as, I have seen Priti's post on Peanut Chutney, I was dying to try that out. few days back, my whole family was in mood for Idli, sambar and to go with that, I made Priti's peanut chutney. I followed her whole recipe, plus thought to add coconut in it, as I love coconut chutney with Idli, Dosa. This chutney is a perfect side dish with Dosa, Upma, idli, Pongal. For original recipe, click here.
