Easy Coconut Chutney

Coconut chutney is my most favourite chutney, and I love to eat it with dosa and idli. Although it’s pretty good with anything spicy!


For the chutney:

  • 1/2 cup fresh coconut – grated/chopped
  • 2 tbsp fried gram
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Water (as required)
  • Salt (to taste)

For the Tadka:

  • 3/4 tbsp of oil
  • 1/4 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 to 3/4 tsp urad dal
  • Pinch of asafoetida (hing)
  • 1 sprig of curry leaves
  • 1 broken red chilli



  1. Blend all the ingredients well without adding water. Scrape the sides and add water just as needed. Blend again. Adjust salt as needed. Heat a pan with oil on a low flame, add mustard, red chilli and urad dal. Saute until golden. Add curry leaves and hing. Off the heat. Saute until the leaves turn crisp. Pour this over the chutney.
