Whenever I prepare south Indian dishes, I usually make coconut coriander chutney to go with it. We love that chutney so much that I was not making any other variety at all in last few years.

But recently when I made idli, I wanted to try a new version. Not sure what I was thinking and decided to try the different chutney. But the decision of perfect. We both loved this one too. From now I will be making this one too regularly and planning to try few other varieties too.

This is simple and basic coconut chutney which is staple in South Indian cuisine. The procedure can’t be easier than this. Grind all the ingredients in the blender and add the tempering on top. Chutney will be ready in few minutes.

Key Ingredients:

— Coconut: Here I have used frozen coconut which needs to be defrosted before grinding. Trust me, defrosting makes the grinding job much easier. if using the fresh then it is perfect.

— Roasted chana dal: Many times, if you may have noticed that water is separating from the chutney. To avoid that, roasted chana dal is added. It absorbs the water and make thick and right consistency.

— Green chili: I have used only 1 green chili which gives mild chutney. If you want spicy you can add more.

— Curry leaves: They are usually added while tempering. But try it this way by grinding it. You will notice the flavor difference. Don’t forget to wash your curry leaves or wipe it clean using damp towel.
