i shall be posting some more coconut chutney recipes with different variations. e.g. in this coconut chutney recipe tempering method is used. coconut is one ingredient that is always there in my kitchen, be it fresh coconut or dessicated coconut.

what contributes majorly to the earthy taste of this hotel style coconut chutney is roasted bengal gram or chana dal.

here there is no tempering but there is some before work which does not take much time. that is of frying the curry leaves.…  and they get fried quickly releasing their aromatic flavors in the oil. thats what you need to do and then grind everything….. and lo the chutney is ready to be served with dosa or idli or vadas.

the coconut chutney can be made with frozen or fresh coconut. to avoid grating coconut in the last minute, i usually grate the whole coconut and then freeze it. when i want, i just take some of the frozen coconut and my job is easy whether it is making chutneys, sambar or vegetable stir fries.

  1. Thanks Dassana, I made this on Pongal with two minor variations (increased the quantity of roasted Chana dal to 0.75 and added a light tempering of mustard seeds and Urad dal) and my husband loved it. This was my first attempt at making coconut chutney and I look forward to trying the other chutney recipes.

    Thanks so much, your blog has always been my go-to for diverse, tasty recipes.
    Heartfelt wishes!

    • Welcome Z. Nice to know the variation you did to make coconut chutney. Thanks for your kind words.

  2. Hi dassana,
    We tried this one today and it was very delicious. As compared to eating coconut giri as it is, I found chutney more digestive and lighter. Probably because of ginger, curry leaves etc. It is a quick-to-make yet yummy accompaniment to perk up an otherwise simple meal.

    • thanks ruchi. ginger, curry leaves do help in digestion. i always find coconut chutneys lighter as compared to veggie based chutneys – the only few exceptions being onion chutney, coriander/mint chutney and tomato chutney. agree, even a simple meal gets perked up with a coconut chutney or for that matter any delicious chutney.
