Green Grapes Chutney

Grapes and chutney you must be just thinking  Hmmmmm .Yes it is chutney from green fruity grapes. It was just a try and it turned out be Wow,,,and tasty.
I have used green grapes, fresh coconut and green chilly. Green Grapes chutney is a side dish and it goes well with almost all the main dishes.
Got these greapes from the form while coming back from Chikka Ballapura after a visit to Avala Betta. 
Avala Betta is a small hill, where the cows used to go up and have their green grass. On the top it is very nice. There are edges which looks scary and people go and take pictures standing on the sharp
Even now cows come to graze. Avala means Cows in Telugu language and because of this the Gudda (what we call for a small hilltop) is called Avala betta.  
Lets see some benefits of eating Grapes in our diet.
