Chutneys are delicious and go well with South Indian breakfast items such as Idlis, Dosas, Vadas and snacks such as Bhajjis, Pakodas, Khandvi, and Dhoklas.

Chutney is a thick paste made from grinding a selection of fresh fruits or vegetables. Spices are added to the chutney to enhance the flavor.

In India, idlis and dosas are the most common and healthy breakfast items, along with chutney. Coconut chutney and Tomato chutney are all-time favorites among my family members.
