As a child I used to shy away from talking about food fearing that I might be mistakenly stamped as a gourmand. Nowadays it is a common sight that teens are talking all about food with their peers with no inhibition, and there is also a welcome trend that kids happily wielding small ladles to cook up their favorite meals (thanks to the TV shows like Masterchef Juniors), and above all we could find gourmands proudly call themselves a foodie.
Coconut chutney is the most commonly prepared condiment in almost every household in South India. It is simply prepared with fresh coconut meat & chillies (green or red chillies) and served with any breakfast. Generally we temper the mustard seeds, black gram, curry leaves and/or chopped shallots in sesame oil or coconut oil and add into coconut chutney to enhance the texture & flavour.
