Onion coconut chutney recipe, with full video. We all look forward to an interesting chutney recipe to pair with idli dosa. A slight variation to the usual chutney will give a lot of twist in the taste. I have posted onion chutney and Onion thokku recipe in jeyashri’s kitchen. As small onions are in season now, I tried this small onion coconut chutney recipe at home. It paired very well with dosai.

Back during our childhood days, amma makes coconut chutney, kothamalli chutney, garlic chutney, kadalaimaavu chutney, or Sambar, whenever she makes idli dosa at home. We happily eat idli dosai with molagapodi also. After I started interacting with friends after marriage, to be precise, after moving to Singapore, I came to know about varieties of South Indian chutney recipes. I have shared a lot of chutney recipes in Jeyashris kitchen too.

This Onion chutney recipe also goes well with chapati too. Small onion suits well for this chutney. But if you don’t get it in your place or running out of time to peel it, use 2 big onions.
