Breakfast recipes from south India-such as Idly, dosa, and vada, are served with Chutney and Sambar to enhance the dish’s taste. Recently, I shared the recipe for Coconut Chutney and Onion-Capsicum-Tomato Chutney, which pair well with many south Indian breakfasts. Today, the recipe I am sharing is Mint Coriander Chutney.
