coconut chutney

chutney is a preparation that can be made in at least a thousand ways with different inrgredients! everytime i ask mom to tell me a quick chutney for the day, she gives me the recipe to a different one…each absolutely delicious and usually simple

this coconut chutney goes very well for a breakfast preparation of akki rotti.


fresh coconut – 1 cup
green chillies – 2
coriander leaves – 3 sprigs
tamarind – little
salt – to taste
for tempering
urad dal – 1teaspoon
mustard seeds – 1teaspoon
curry leaves – few
whole red chillies – 3


1. grind coconut, green chillies, tamarind, coriander leaves and salt
2. pour out into a serving dish & temper with mustard seeds, chana dal, urad dal, red chillies and curry leaves


while south indian food is simple, please be generous with oil for tempering. results are yummy! how much chutney will you consume anyway 😉
