Coconut green chilli chutney recipe - chutney for idli dosa - how to make coconut green chilli chutney

Coconut chilli chutney recipe - My previous post was neer dosa. I had prepared this chutney to serve with it. Coconut and green chilli chutney is a nice accompaniment for dosa and idlis. Whenever I prepare dosa or idli, most of the time I make this chutney. It has hot, slightly sweet and sour taste. It can be prepared with few ingredients which are easily available in the kitchen shelf and fridge.Friends, try out this tongue tickling chutney for dosa and idli.

chutney in a serving bowl

1 cup grated fresh coconut
3 green chillies, roasted on flame
1 large grape size tamarind
1/4 tsp sugar or jaggery
1/2 tsp salt ( or as required)

To temper
1 - 2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
4 - 5 curry leaves

  • Wash the green chillies and pat dry them with kitchen towel. Roast these green chillies on low flame till few dark spots appear on it. Chop them and set aside. 
  • Mix the grated fresh coconut, green chillies, tamarind and sugar or jaggery.  Put them in a mixer and grind it to a slightly coarse paste, using little bit of drinking water to make a chutney. 
  • Transfer this chutney  to a large bowl. Add the salt and mix well. 
  • To temper the chutney, heat the oil in a small frying pan and add mustard seeds to it. When the seeds start spluttering, add the curry leaves and fry till they turn crispy. 
  • Pour this tempering over the chutney. Mix well and serve with dosa and idli.
