red chilli coconut chutney recipe with step by step photos. here’s a slightly hot version of red chilli coconut chutney. like most of the coconut chutneys, this chutney pairs well with idli, dosa, uttapam and medu vada. also good with starters like pakoras.

i have kept the chutney mildly spiced and hot by using less red chilies. addition of tamarind also tones down the hotness and makes the chutney slightly sour. if you want a more reddish color in the chutney, then you can add kashmiri red chilies. they are not so hot and give a good natural red coloring to the food.

this red chilli chutney gets the punch when it is tempered. so please temper the chutney. best to have the chutney immediately or freeze the chutney and consume within 1-2 days. you can also check this similar recipe of kerala style red coconut chutney.
