Dalia Coconut Chutney | Fried Gram Dal Chutney | Putnala Pappu Pachadi

Dalia coconut Chutney is one of the quickest & easy to make dish. This chutney includes very less ingredients & tastes yummy when paired with south Indian breakfast dishes. This chutney can be customized using peanuts, coriander leaves, fried tomatoes or garlic for a flavorful variation in taste.
Pairs well with south Indian breakfast dishes like Idli, dosa ,upma & for some traditional rice dishes like pulihoratomato ricebisi bele bath, vangi bath too. My favorite pairing of this chutney is with poori's.
