there are many variations of nariyal chutney (coconut chutney) made for south indian snacks like dosa, idli, mysore bajji and medu vada. in fact in the kitchens of south india, you will get the best coconut chutneys.

this nariyal ki chutney is simple and makes use of ingredients that are easily available in your kitchen. if you do not have curry leaves, it is alright. the 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, it is better to consume the nariyal 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.
