a thread on the general topics board got me thinking:
does anyone know a place in the five boroughs that makes coconut chutney (the kind served with dosa, idlis etc.) from fresh coconuts? I have only ever had it made with dried coconut (even at the dosa hutt on bowne st.) which is not nearly as good.
Really, I'm imagining someplace like you might get in india---large fluffy fresh idli and big bowls of fresh delicious coconut chutney.
