Red Chillies & coconut do make a lovely combination, the heat & the cool! good to eat with about anything.

DK said...

aaah! I know I want to make some..but I am thinking if it will be too hot. If i reduce chillies so much enough to reduce the heat, then why make one though!!!! what a paradox. But the chutney looks yum! Will try this with a glass of water ready nearby :)
