Plain coconut chutney

This is the simplest chutney packed with a punch. It gets its strong flavour from all the raw ingredients that go into it. If you love coconut then this is one chutney you must try.

What more, it has mainly 3 ingredients that are commonly available in your kitchen on any given day.

Preparation time is only 5 minutes! Lets quickly jump to the recipe

1 small onion
2 cups heaped fresh coconut
1 garlic clove (Make it two if you like more garlic)
1 or 2 green chillies
1/2 tsp tamarind pulp
Salt to taste

For Tadka/ tempering
1 tsp chana dal
1 tsp split udath dal
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
5-8 curry leaves
2 tsp oil

Grind all the ingredients in a mixer by adding little water. Add salt at the time of grinding.

Heat oil in small kadhai. Add chana and udath dal. When they turn brown, quickly add mustard seeds. When the seeds start spluttering, turn off the gas and add curry leaves and mix well.

Move the chutney into a bowl and put the tempering on chutney and mix well.

Lovely chutney is ready! Enjoy it with idli or dosa or vada!!
