Coconut Chutney

January 10, 2015 Motions and Emotions 5 Comments

Coconut chutney is famous in Southern part of India and served with varieties of dishes such as, Idli, Dosa, Vada, etc. It requires very few ingredients but tastes yummy. Here is how I prepared the famous coconut chutney.

Coconut Chutney

Coconut -  1cup, scrapped
Gram Dal (Chana Dal) -  2 to 21/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves - 8 to 10
Green Chilli - 1 or 2
Mustard Seeds - 1 teaspoon
Dry Red Chilli - 1
Urad Dal - 1/2 teaspoon
Refined Oil - 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste


Roast the gram dal in dry pan and take into grinder and make coarse powder. Now add scrapped coconut, half of the curry leaves (4 to 5), green chilli and salt along with chana dal powder. If required add little water (1 or 2 tablespoon) and make smooth paste. Take this out in a bowl. In a pan heat oil and add dry red chilli, mustard seeds, urad dal and remaining curry leaves. When they start splattering, pour the oil mixture in coconut chutney. Mix well with a spoon and serve it with your preferred dish. You can cool and store it in the refrigerator for two to three days.
