If you aren't familiar, chutneys are a condiment popularly eaten in South Asian countries like Pakistan and India.  They are made from a blend of a variety of ingredients such as herbs, spices, fruits, and vegetables. Chutney's are commonly used to brighten, flavor, or compliment certain flavors in dishes.  Looking back at my favorite childhood memories, I remember always helping my mom stir up some deliciously fragrant homemade chutneys every weekend. I would always be her little helper grinding herbs and spices away with my mini stone mortar and pestle.  Now, I can clearly understand where my love for chutneys comes from. If you take a peek inside my fridge, you can come across sweet, savory, and spicy chutneys to pair with any dish possible.  This Coconut & Herb Chutney I am sharing here immensely freshens and brightens up any dish it is paired with.  This chutney can be either be made using a food processor or if you have a little time on your hands, grab a stone mortar and pestle and get to grindin'!
