Coconut, as I have mentioned earlier, is a superfood and has been always used in the daily cooking by the people of South India and Coastal regions of Maharashtra. Coconut is an immensely healthy food item. One common dish made using coconuts, is chutney.

But, there are numerous delicious types of coconut chutneys prepared by different communities. One such chutney is the Sweet And Sour Coconut Chutney. The use of a little sugar and lemon juice gives this chutney a delicious flavour. This makes it taste best with idlis. I was introduced to this chutney after my marriage. It is now my daughter’s favourite chutney!

An artist by nature, I love painting, travelling to different places and photographing nature, gardening, crochet, reading, etc. It's my nature to give my best to anything and everything I do. From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste. Started this blog to share a few recipes of mine with all other cooking enthusiasts! Happy cooking to all! 😃
