Coconut Chutney-Red

This is one of those dishes which will take you right into Kerala. Though chutney is one of the dishes that all south Indians make,mostly Malayalees make chutney with just coconut. We have so many varieties in this and today I am going to talk about the red chutney that goes well with dosa, masala dosa and idli. This is my Mom's recipe and is a hit in my family.

chutney

Ingredients

For grinding:
Coconut grated-1 Cup
Green chillies- 1
Red chillies-5
Ginger-a half inch cube
Shallot-1

salt-to taste
Water

For seasoning:
Mustard-1/2 tsp
Shallot(thinly sliced)-1-2
Red chillies(halves)-3
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Cocnut oil/any oil -1tbsp

cocnut chutney

Method:

1.Grind all the ingredients listed under grinding, to a smooth paste.
2.Heat oil in a pan and do the seasoning.
3.Meanwhile take the grind mixture in a bowl and add enough water and salt, mix well
4.Pour this into the pan where you have the seasoning and mix well.
5.Let this boil till you see a froth forming on the top.
6.Mix well and pour into the serving bowl
7.Do not over-boil the chutney. That will make it curdled.
8. Serve with Dosa, Masala Dosa or Idli.

  13. Adi poli! I have changed my style of chutney so much with all the other south indian tastes incorporated. However, whenever I go back home and have this one.. its just wonderful. Even now thinking about I can feel the morning cool air on a humid day in Kerala and eating dosa and this chutney. Thanks for a reminder of this wonderful homey taste.
