This chutney goes well with idly and Dosa. I like to use this as a sandwich spread too! There are many methods but I follow the south Indian style as it goes well for idly and dosa. I love the aroma and the flavour it gives…so refreshing. This green coriander chutney recipe is the best chutney you will ever try! You’ll believe me when you taste it!
