The Coconut Chutney has a well-rounded flavour that goes well with most variants of Idlis , Dosas , Appe , be it plain, veggie-topped, or more exotic options like Rava Idli or Ragi Dosa .

If you have grated coconut ready on hand, then it takes just minutes to prepare the coconut chutney, which makes it a popular accompaniment for breakfast.

You can vary the amount of green chillies according to your taste. And, if you are serving this as the only accompaniment and want a bit of tang in it, you can also blend in a ½ inch piece of deseeded tamarind or 1 tsp of tamarind pulp.

For grinding coconut chutney

  1. In a big mixer jar, add the grated coconut. You can use fresh or frozen coconut. Also, for easy grinding we have taken grated coconut but, if you are lazy then you can put roughly chopped coconut and pulse it more. Many people even use coconut powder or dessicated coconut, if doing so then make use of warm water while grinding.
  2. Add roughly chopped small green chillies. If you like your South-Indian coconut chutney spicy, then simply increase the quantity of chilies.
  3. Add grated ginger to the mixer jar. Adrak can be skipped or substituted with garlic.
  4. Now add 1 tbsp of roasted chana dal. If chana dal is not available, then you can skip adding it. The nariyal ki chatni will taste equally delicious without it.
  5. Add salt to taste.
  6. Add approximately 1/2 cup of water and blend. We have added a little more then half cup.
  7. Grind to make a fine paste. It looks like this! If you like a liquidy coconut chutney then increase the quantity of water.
  8. Transfer the chutney into a bowl.

For tempering coconut chutney

  1. For the tempering of nariyal ki chutney, heat oil in a non-stick tadka pan. Make use of any neutral flavored oil. Once the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds.
  2. When the seeds crackle, add broken red chilli.
  3. Finally, add curry leaves. Kadi patta is one of the most important ingredient of an authentic South-Indian tempering.
  4. Mix well and pour this tempering over the chutney.
  5. Gently mix and your coconut chutney for idli, dosa and vada is ready! 
  6. Refrigerate and use as required. It is best to consume it fresh.
  7. Coconut chutney is made in a number of variations by adding/substituting ingredients. Malgapodi and Tomato Coconut Chutney, Tomato Coconut Chutney, Fresh Coconut Garlic Chutney are few varieties of the South-Indian coconut chutney. Enjoy them with various South-Indian snacks.

Coconut Chutney for diabetics, weight loss

  1. Is this coconut chutney good for diabetics, heart and weight loss. There is lots of debate on coconut. The fresh coconut has saturated fats but most of it is MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) which promote weight loss. The high fibre content 13.6 gm (45.3% of RDA) along with high lauric acid content of coconut improves cholesterol levels in the body. Improving the action of insulin secretion and lowering the raised blood sugar levels is yet another benefit of coconut for Diabetics. So yes, this coconut chutney is perfect for diabetics, weight loss and heart. As with anything good, have it in restricted quantity. Our suggestion is to replace oil with coconut oil to make the coconut chutney recipe even healthier.
