coconut tamarind chutney recipe

this coconut chutney is a simple and easy recipe and goes very well with idli and dosa. this is my mom’s recipe and even now she makes this chutney with idli and dosa. the slight sour taste of tamarind is one of the main flavor factor in this chutney, which is accompanied with the mild sweetness of  fresh coconut. there is also the heat of green chilies felt in the chutney.

usually we add just one green chili and do not make a spicy chutney. but you can add up to two green chilies for a spicy chutney. if you do not have green chilies, then you can even add dry red chilies. the chutney made with green chilies tastes different than the chutney made with red chilies.

in this coconut chutney recipe, chana dal is not added. a tempering of mustard seeds, cumin, curry leaves and dry red chili is also done. you can also check this imli chutney recipe.

make this delicious coconut tamarind chutney and serve with idli, dosa or uttapam.
