Ingredients to make Coconut Chutney

  • Grated coconut 1 cup
  • salt to taste
  • green chillies 2 to 3

  • For the tempering, you will need
  • curry leaves a few
  • Bengal gram or chana dal a tbsp
  • Dry red chillies 3 to 4

How to make Coconut Chutney

  1. Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan and roast the coconut on low flame until it changes a little colour.
  2. Add the green chillies and the tamarind pulp. Saute it for a minute and then switch off the flame.
  3. Grind them all adding the salt to it and keep aside.
  4. Add some water if necessary. If you wish you can skip roasting the coconut and directly grind it.
  5. Heat the oil, add the mustard seeds. Let them splutter and then add in the bengal gram.
  6. Let it get roasted a little and then add the curry leaves.
  7. Add this hot tempering to the coconut mix.
  8. Serve this with your favourite South Indian dish.

My Tip:

You can skip the tamarind if you wish and add lemon juice instead or nothing at all. It still tastes yummy.
