Pongal Chutney recipe

One of my favorite pongal chutney is coconut chutney as it is so simple to make but very delicious. Coconut chutney goes well with pongal, idli, dosa, and bread. It is very simple to make with basic ingredients. I have also included Pongal chutney recipe video at the end of this hub. There are hundreds of varieties of chutneys that you can prepare like pudhina chutney, tomato chutney, karivepillai chutney, peanut chutney, etc. but the most popular one is, of course, the coconut chutney.
