Quick, easy, simple, and absolutely delicious South Indian Chutneys. These chutneys are a must for any South Indian recipe – masala dosa, ragi dosa, idli, appe, upma, etc. These chutneys make these dishes even tastier. I always make a batch of it and keep it in my refrigerator at all times since we both love south Indian recipes a lot. We make idli and upma almost every week.
You can refrigerate these chutneys in air-tight containers for around two weeks or even more. So, make a batch and keep it in your refrigerator at all times and enjoy whenever you make any South Indian dish.
Are these recipes vegan?
Yes. Of course.
All the ingredients used in these chutney recipes are vegan and plant-based. Coconut Coriander chutney needs some curd or yogurt and you can use coconut curd if you are looking for vegan options. You can use plant-based curd but I prefer coconut curd since it is milk in taste and a little bit of coconut flavor doesn’t hurt in south Indian recipes. If you are not vegan, you can use any dairy curd.
Now grab all the ingredients because you are ready to make quick and easy chutney recipes at home. If you like these recipes, please share the photo of your creation on Instagram and tag us too @marriedfriends. We just love to see your recreation of our recipes.

South Indian Recipes are incomplete without these flavorful, tangy, tasty chutneys. If you love Idli, Dosa, Appe, Upma, etc., then you must make a batch of it and store it in your refrigerator at all times.
