Pudina Kobbari Pachadi ~ Mint Coconut Chutney



Pudina Kobbari Pachadi for Idli, Dosa and Vada
Mint Coconut Chutney

Summer has made its way into our part of the world and am trying to make optimum use of fresh coriander before it makes an exit from the local farmer’s market. Bought 4 large bunches and prepared green chutney yesterday. I used the left over coriander along with home grown pudina and coconut to make this easy breezy chutney to go with our morning breakfast, Idli. Makes a delightful side with idlis, ponganalu and vadas.

    I tried it today. Amazing! Nice end of year dinner in combination with dosa! BTW, I use brown rice for dosas and it comes out great. I see that you have a listing under brown rice recipes. Perhaps you could add this. Make those round beauties healthier.
