Coconut and curry leaves chutney - Simple dip recipe with curry leaves and coconut - side for idli, dosa, iddiyappam

I love the flavour of Curry leaves. However my family does not, esp if I do it without coconut. However the green chutney which is done with coconut and mix of coriander, mint and curry leaves everyone loved it. Also when we visited my mum last year she made this version and everyone loved it. So I made this for idli other day.. With this getting kids to have curry leaves is not an issue
