Avocado - Coconut Chutney | Side Dish for Idli / Dosa

Its easy to make idli/ dosa for breakfast and when making side for it if it happens to be sambar children complain of it so it sometimes becomes little tough for me to decide the side dish for it.When I bought few avocado I was left with one left which I was planning to make ice-cream but it doesn't happen ,So decided to end by making this chutney.Googled to get some knowledge of it and ended making the version suiting me.
