Garlic Coconut Chutney

I made a chutney with Garlic and Coconut to go with Dosa. It was a nice variation from the usual coconut chutney that I make.


Coconut 1 cup
Garlic 10-12 pods
Red Chillies 5
Tamarind paste 1/2 tsp (or less)
Mustard 1/2 tsp
Urad dal 1/2 tsp
Hing a little
Curry leaves few
Oil and Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Heat a little oil in a small pan and add the pealed garlic. Mine were really big ones. So I cut them into 2 before frying. Fry them till they start to brown.

2. Add the red chillies and let it sizzle.

3. Add the coconut and fry for a couple of minutes.

4. Grind the above mix with tamarind and salt into a smooth paste by adding a little water.

5. For tempering, heat oil in a small pan and add the mustard. When it sputters, add the urad dal. When it starts to brown, add the curry leaves and hing. Add it to the chutney.

Serve with idli or dosa.
