  1. This looks absolutely delicious, Nimmi! Thank you for bringing in along to our Fiesta Friday blog party – I cannot wait to give this a try! One question I have, though: what do you mean by ‘coconut’? We can buy desiccated coconut here in the UK, as well as oil, milk and cream. Is it any of these? Thank you for pointing me into the right direction 🙂

    1. 😃!! Desiccated coconut will do .. here I have used fresh grated coconut.,but in another post I made a similar chutney with desiccated coconut too..thank you so much for stopping by 😊😊

  2. Indian cuisine amazes me! The creativity in the use of spices is quite mind boggling and inspiring. This is a new kind of chutney for me. Sounds delicious!

  3. It’s new to me, too, so I appreciate you sharing. I love hearing and seeing how this was combined into a melange of lovely flavors! Happy Fiesta Friday and thanks for bringing this dish to share.
