Spicy Chutney for any Tiffin

Spicy chutney is made with the mixed ingredients like coconut, shallots, roasted gram, garlic etc.,. It tastes very well to have with any tiffin. Especially when you have hot idlis with this chutney it tastes very delicious. My mom makes this special chutney and it is the favorite chutney of her grand children. My son whenever travels, asks me to do this chutney as the side dish for idlis. You also try this and give me the feedback....
