Coconut chutney 2

This is another way of making this chutney. I learned this from one of my friend. This is my favorite side dish for idly, dosa, upma and pongal. Here is the recipe.


  1. Fresh coconut - 1 cup
  2. Dalia split - 2 tbsp
  3. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  4. Ginger - a small piece
  5. Salt to taste

For seasoning:-
  1. Oil - 1 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  3. urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  4. Onion - 1/2 (finely chopped)
  5. Curry leaves - few
  6. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Grind coconut + Dalia peas + green chillies + ginger + salt, to fine paste adding required amount of water. This is chutney. While seasoning,take a small pan, pre heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, add urad dhall and asafoetida powder and fry it till golden brown. Now add the chopped onion and curry leaves and saute till onion becomes transperant. Pour it on top of chutney. This kind of seasoning is new to me. But I like this kind too.
