The recipe, I am going to make today is going to be a dry side dish. If you are familiar with hummus, that is the consistency this dish will have.

Let me show you, how this recipe is made in my home.

Coconut Chutney recipe- Preparation Steps

1. Grate ½ the coconuts and keep it aside. For the ingredients for chutney, you would need grated coconuts, 5 green chilies, 2 red chilies, 1 small portion of ginger, a small round of tamarind.



I have added 5 green chilies to make chutney really hot. If you don’t like it spicy, reduce the chilies to 3 or 4. 

2. Add the ingredients into a mixer or food processor. Add ¼ tbsp. of asafetida and 1 tbsp of salt. 


3. Ground it into a thick paste. Don’t add too much water first up. Add water in small batches to ensure the consistency of the mix.


4. Once, the mix has been well grounded, chop coriander leaves and garnish on top of it. Serve it with hot idlis. 


This combination of chutney goes well with idlis, dosas or even rotis. But my favorite recipe to have with this chutney is medhu vada. Medhu Vada Sambar with chutney, is my all-time favorite unbeatable breakfast recipe. Something that came close to it was cheese-omlette and French fries.
