Tomato Coconut Chutney recipe | Coconut tomato chutney recipe with step by step photos and video recipe. simple chutney recipe that will be good for the chutney idlis similar to sambar idlis. 

I like to soak the idlis in this chutney and rest it for few minutes and take the delicious chutney idlis. I had this type ones at two places. one in Bangalore Adigas but then it was green coconut chutney. another one was at Kerala kongadu.

Tomato Coconut Chutney recipe

It is a very old petty shop with wooden benches and tables. they work only from 7-10 am. and you wont believe the rush. the shop has a total of 13-15 persons at a time and people will be waiting in queue to have their idlis, nalikeram chutney and ulli chutney. 

they make fresh idlis super hot and pour the thin red coconut chutney over the idlis. and the chilli chutney on the side. I saw some people letting the idlis soak for few minutes and “kozhachu adika” means mix together and eat. believe me it was super tasty and i tried it too.
