This coconut mint chutney is super easy to make and goes perfectly well with idli, dosa, upma, and vada. It needs just a handful of ingredients. Freshly grated coconut, mint leaves, and green chilli are blended together with water to make a coarse paste. The ground chutney is then tempered with a tadka or seasoning, made by spluttering mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves in hot coconut oil.
