Coconut Chutney


People prepare this chutney in different ways. So it is up to you to make your own variations after trying this basic recipe. Some people add tamarind to coconut chutney, but I don't add because, in my personal opinion, it is better to avoid tamarind as much as possible from your diet. Now let's see what you need to make this delicious chutney.

Fresh Coconut            1/2

Green chillies             2

Ginger (optional)        a small piece

Fried gram (pottu kadalai)   1 1/2 tbsp.

Mustard                       1/4 tsp.

Oil for seasoning        1 tsp.

Curry leaves               1 sprig

Salt                               1/2 - 3/4 tsp or as necessary

Grind coconut with green chillies, 1 tbsp. fried gram, ginger and salt.

You can use the coconut water to grind the ingredients.

Season with mustard, 1/2 tsp. fried gram and curry leaves.

Add to the chutney.

Goes well with Idli, Rava Idli, Dosa, Pongal and Upma.
