chutney powder in a container
Dry coconut and garlic or lasun chutney powder recipe - Dry coconut and garlic chutney powder is a very healthy chutney powder prepared with few ingredients. This dry coconut based chutney powder is usually served as a side dish to rotis, chapatis and rice with curry. Instant chutney can be prepared by mixing it with yogurt. Garlic has many health benefits.

It is believed that eating raw garlic keeps one awake. Therefore, garlic chutney is usually eaten by students during exam time. If your kids are preparing for exams and they want to keep awake, give them garlic chutney which is very effective. It can be easily stored in an airtight container for about 15 days out side the refrigerator. 

If you want to keep it for a longer period, store it in a closed jar and keep it in the refrigerator. If you want the chutney to be bit sour, you can add a pinch of amchur powder or  one grape sized tamarind to the chutney at the time of grinding. You can also use raw garlic instead of fried one.
