this coconut chutney is simple and makes use of ingredients which are easily available in your kitchen. if you do not have curry leaves, its alright. the coconut chutney won’t have the flavor and aroma of curry leaves, but nevertheless it will taste good.

fresh coconut is easily perishable in a warm or hot climate. if you stay in a country like india, its better to consume the coconut chutney soon. if you have to keep it for a day, then keep it covered in the freezer.

i have made this nariyal chutney both with fresh coconut as well as with desiccated coconut. both ways the chutney tastes good. if using desiccated coconut, then use warm water while grinding. if you are using fresh coconut then don’t use warm water.
