Coconut Chutney

Coconut chutney is perfect accompaniment for Idli or Dosa. I like to have it with chappathi and kichidi. Every restaurant in India will have this chutney for breakfast!!! Its very easy to prepare and tastes very good.

1 cup grated coconut
1/4 cup dalia/ Pottukadalai (tamil)
1 bunch coriander leaves
1 tbsp tamarind paste
3 green chillies
salt to taste


1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp mustard seeds
1 tsp channa and Urad dhal
curry leaves


Fry the items mentioned in the ingredients except tamarind paste. slightly roast them on medium heat. Remove from heat allow to cool down. Grind the roasted ingredients with little water. Add the tamarind paste to the mixture. Add some water and grind to fine consistency.

Transfer to serving bowl.

Heat oil in a pan. Add the items in the seasoning in order. Once the dhals become slightly golden remove from heat and put it in the chutney bowl. The chutney should not be heated(loses its flavour and forms lumps)

Serve with Idli or Dosa!!!
