Cabbage Chutney - No coconut Chutney

Idlis are a favourite at my place.My LM loves them she would have them all three meals a day but she needs it with her idli podi no chutney.But we love our chutneys and sambar to go with the healthy idli.
Just saw some cabbage lying in the fridge and thought of trying a chutney which was really nice.

See how thick it is can you tell if doesn't have coconut.Yes this is a no-coconut chutney.I usually add a lot of coconut to our daily food but not adding it in a chutney is definitely a surprise.The cabbage made this chutney really nice and thick not really demanding for coconut to do that part.
