South Indian Chutney – One of those food that you would find being made in most of the Indian households..


At my home you would find either of the 5 varieties (actually even more than those being shared) in the fridge at any given point of time.

And what are those 5 varieties that I am sharing today?
1. Tomato Chutney
2. Onion Chutney
3. Coconut Chutney
4. Coriander Mint Chutney
5. Street style Chilli Chutney

These chutneys go well with idlis or dosas.

But apart from that you can even use this as an accompaniment along with chapati or phulka too..

The best part about these South Indian Chutney is that some of them are no cook and can be made in just 5 mins of time..

In fact we make all these chutneys in the morning in flat 15 mins..

And making it in a cast iron pan adds a whole new flavour.. I must say.. Just recently I bought this cast iron pan and absolutely love it. Yes you need to take care of it but then no matter what you cook in it, everything turns out delicious.

Must say this Sunday brunch I had an amazing time.. All my favourite at one time.. I loved the Street Style Chutney that was something new for me learned it from my mother.

Let me know which one is yours??

Each of the South Indian Chutney that I prepared the other day had its own flavour.

And making them were not a big task too..

I should say that we had all the flavours on the plate.. the tartness from tomato, freshness from mint coriander, sweetness from the onions, spicy chilli chutney and coconut chutney is everyone’s favourite right.

With soft idlis and dosas the South Indian Chutney combination were a super hit!!
