Vrat ki coconut chutney recipe with step by step photos – I make this simplest coconut chutney on fasting days to be served as a side dish with the vrat snacks and also at times when I want to make a quick coconut chutney.

This coconut chutney recipe is adapted from my mom’s recipe and she usually tempers the chutney. When making on fasting days, I don’t temper the chutney. But otherwise sometimes I do prepare the tempering.

I always freeze fresh grated coconut and this comes handy when making any coconut chutney or coconut based dish. This chutney is just made up of only 3 ingredients – coconut, green chilies and rock salt.

Green chilies provide a lot of flavor and balances the slight sweet tones of the coconut in this chutney recipe. Depending on the pungency of the chilies, I use one or two in the chutney. You can add as per your requirements.

This coconut chutney goes well with the fasting or vrat snacks that are made during Navratri, Ekadashi or Janmashtami. it also goes very well with idli, dosa and medu vada. In the above pic, the coconut chutney is served with a no onion medu vada.

    1. yes, you can use regular salt, if not making the coconut chutney for fasting. rock salt is called as sendha namak in hindi.

  1. This is my favorite and I had forgotten about these. Need to give this a try soon again. Love it!

  2. Coconut chutney sounds good and the rest of the dishes for Ganesh Utsav look equally good. Good job!5 stars
