Easy Coconut Chutney

This is a quick and easy chutney that can be put together in matter of minutes. This chutney goes well with idli, dosa, ven pongal and even goli baji. I made the chutney to serve with goli baje or Mangalore bajji. Most of the online sources suggested serving goli bajji with coconut chutney and this is the quickest chutney I could make.

This is lot similar to the this coconut chutney minus the coriander leaves and ginger. Ginger in this chutney is optional but adding it would enhance the flavor.
