I have already shared many chutney varieties in my blog. Today I have come up with a chutney which is easy to make and best for the summer to reduce the heat. Tastes similar to coconut chutney with coriander leaves flavour. U could not recognize the taste of the cucumber in this chutney but it is best at summer days to include cucumber in your diet to reduce the body heat.

Healthy and tasty chutney variety which could be prepared easily with the ingredients available in your pantry. Do try this at this summer days to reduce the heat.
