Curry leaves Chutney | Karuvepillai Chutney | Chutney Recipe

Curry leaves chutney, a delicious and flavorful chutney made from curry leaves and coconut as main ingredients. If you have been following me for a while, you might knew that how much i like idli and dosa. If i were given a choice to choose only one food to eat my entire life, i would have chosen dosa anytime. I love to eat dosa any time, even for lunch, without any complaints. Do you know about the ekadasi vratham(fasting,it was last monday this year) in margazhi(tamil) month?? Back in our home town(Tirunelveli), throughout that day, we eat only idli or dosa, strictly no rice on that day. Next day morning(thuvadesi), the whole banana leaf meal is prepared to finish off the vratham. To be honest, i like ekadasi vratham especially for that idli & dosa diet on the whole day. When i was school goer, preferred to have dosa for three meal, didn't even consider the idli on those days :-)  
Is this post about chutney, right? Yes, i can hear your mind voice. As much as i like idli and dosa, same side dish in a row would be really boring. So always tried to make different varieties of chutney. More than sambar, i prefer chutney varieties for idli or dosa and this curry leaves chutney is my recent favorite. Back in US, i never found curry leaves in any store other than indian store. In one of my previous post, i had mentioned how cautiously i would use the small pack of curry leaves for 2 weeks. But here in Canada, even the walmart carries curry leaves and it's usually come in large quantity than the usual, so i have been making curry leaves chutney and podi a lot now a days. 
Curry leaves are packed with lot of micro nutrients and it's believed to improve your hair growth tremendously and helps to avoid the grey hair in early age, so apart from use it in tempering, include them in chutneys or podi will give more benefits to your health. Now let's checkout how i have prepared this healthy & tasty curry leaves chutney.
