Farali coconut chutney recipe - This is farali nariyal ki chutney. Meaning this can be consumed during the vrat, fast or upvaas like Navratri, ekadasi, maha shivratri and so on.
There is another chutney recipe on blog which can be consumed during vrat - Phalahari chutney
Peanuts are added to this chutney. It gives nice texture and makes really thick chutney. Also it added good nutty flavor. As all the water part is absorbed by the peanuts. Thus you will have really thick chutney.
Yogurt is added in this recipe which balances the slight sweet tone of fresh coconut. Green chili adds a hint of spicy taste.
Few sprigs of coriander leaves are also added. Many people do not eat during the fasting. So please consult with your elders and then add in the recipe. If you are not sure then you can skip it as well.
I also tempered the chutney (same as regular coconut coriander chutney) with cumin seeds and curry leaves. If you do not eat curry leaves while fasting then skip it or you can skip the tempering step entirely. It will still taste good.
