Coconut chutney- restaurant style                   

My aunt taught me this restaurant style coconut chutney, which is in pure white colour. This chutney has a unique taste. It goes well with idly, Dosa, uppma or kichadi and pongal. Coconut chutney is a simple-easy recipe and it becomes the important side dish to serve usually with most of the South Indian breakfast dishes.

  • 1 tsp urd dal
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp jeera
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2  inch of ginger
  • 4 green chillies
  • 5 to 6 pieces of coconut 
  • 2 shallots
  • Salt to taste

  1. Take away the coconut skin and chop it finely. 
  2. In a mixer jar, first grind the coconut 
  3. Now add the green chillies, garlic, ginger, shallot and required salt.
