    @steamy kitchen
    jaggery is unrefined sugar right from sugarcane. but Jade, you can substitute with brown sugar if you cant find jaggery.

    Hi Raji! Sweet coconut chutney looks great. How you got that color? from Jaggery? love the color. Really simple recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice recipe! I make coconut chutney all the time but have never added jaggery. This is a nice variation.
