South Indian food is incomplete without coconut chutney. In this post, let’s see how you can make authentic South Indian-style coconut chutney.
The recipe is mainly made by blending coconut. But I like to add green chilies, cumin seeds, mustard seeds and some other ingredients to make a better version of the chutney. The recipe has got high nutritional values and is really healthy for kids. You can serve it with dosa, medu vada and idli.
To prepare coconut chutney, grind coconut. Now, make a powder of green chilies, roasted chana dal and ginger. Then, add coconut, curd, lemon juice, salt, and water to the same jar and grind. Sauté mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chili and curry leaves for 10 seconds. Add them to the coconut and the chutney is ready.
