Coconut Chutney

A plate of Idli, Vada, Dosai, Pongal will never be complete without a cup of coconut chutney...


1 cup fresh grated coconut
1 green chilli
salt to taste
2 tsp of split peas (split roast gram dal)
2 tbsp of water
1 small pearl onion (shallot)
1 tsp of Mustard seeds
1 tsp of Urad dal
2 tsp of oil
Curry leaves.


In a mixer, Add coconut, chilli, roasted split peas, onion & salt grind this. Add the water slowly and grind it into smooth paste. For seasoning, Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Once they splutter, add the urad dal. Once the dal turns light brown add the Curry leaves. You can also add a pinch of Hing if necessary. Pour this onto the chutney and serve.

Enjoiiiiii !!!!

Tips: You can also use frozen grated coconut, Just use Hot water instead of the cold water in the above recipe.
