Coconut Chutney

Print Friendly and PDF

Coconut Chutney:
Coconut chutney with hot soft idly and golden crisp dosa is one of my favorite breakfast menu. Coconut chutney is a classic accompaniment and tastes great with  many South Indian tiffin dishes like upma, utappam, vada , etc. It is very quick and easy to prepare. The color of chillies decides the color of chutney and it has an appetizing greenish white color.  
Here is the traditional coconut chutney recipe for you..!
Ingredients:
  • Grated coconut                         - 1 cup
  • Green chilly                               - 1 or 2
  • Fried gram dal                           - ½ cup
  • Ginger                                      - little
  • Oil                                            - 1 tsp
  • Mustard                                    - ¼ tsp
  • Cumin                                       - ½ tsp
  • Red chilly                                  -  1
  • Asafetida                                  - a pinch
  • Curry leaves                              - 3 to 4
  • Split urad dal                            - ¼ tsp
  • Coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
Method:
  1. Put the grated coconut, green chilly, fried gram dal, salt, ginger in a blender.
  2. Add little water and grind to fine paste.
  3. Transfer to serving bowl.
  4. In a small fry pan, heat a tsp of oil.
