Coconut Chutney

Chutney forms a important side dish for breakfasts, especially South Indian Breakfasts. Most of the breakfast items go well with chutney exceptions being puttu, appams etc.I am a big fan of coconut chutney and in my case i need side dish for chutney. 😀 I can eat chutney all by itself. There are many versions of chutneys, i only know a few of them although 😉  Shall try to broaden my horizons on this point. 🙂  Today I am sharing the basic coconut chutney recipe.


Here goes the recipe:


Serves 3

Coconut grated/ cut in pieces:  1/2 cup

Fried gram dal (Pottukadalai) : 1 tbsp

Green Chillies: 2 -3

Tamrind: 1 small piece (optional)

Salt to taste

Water as needed.

To Temper:

Oil :1/2 tbsp

Mustard seeds: 1 tsp

Urad Dal:1 tsp

Chana dal: 1 tsp

Curry Leaves: 1 spring

Red chilli: 1


Grind all the above ingredients smoothly. Transfer in a bowl.Add water as per consistency required. Temper with “To temper” ingredients.

Serve with any breakfast items.


You can add a little curd while grinding if you wish.

For the chutney to stay good for longer, do the tempering in a pan and add chutney to it. Then transfer in a bowl.

If adding tamarind, curd can be skipped.

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
