Tell you the truth, There are a lot I mean a lot of recipes out there for chutneys so I never thought to post it but these three are my favorite and I always use it for my south Indian recipes so like to share with you all. Coconut is basically you can say regular Coconut chutney but garlic tomato chutney is I just love it with spicy paniyaram and pesarattu. While the ginger chutney with mysore masala dosa and pesarattu.  But you can have it what ever way you please.
