i made the sesame chutney when i made poha dosa. it was superb with the poha dosa. the leftover chutney we had with some onion pakoras. you can serve it with other pakora varieties as well.

you can make many varieties of coconut chutney recipes like red coconut chutney, hotel style coconut chutney and have them with south indian snacks like idli, dosas and uttapams. a simple chutney adds so much flavor and taste to south indian snacks that you won’t feel like having them without a chutney along with it.

the color of the chutney is bright orange as i have added kashmiri red chilies to the chutney. the only variation in this recipe is the addition of roasted peanuts and dry red chilies.

this sesame coconut chutney does not have any tempering done. after grinding with some water, you can just serve it directly with idlis or dosas. so this is a quick and easy chutney, if you have all the ingredients at home. even bachelors or novice cook can make it easily at home.

  1. Hi dassana,
    in the recipe steps, while grinding, peanut addition is missing. It’s obvious though and also there in the pics but just in case.

    • thanks ruchi for informing me. i have added the peanuts step. thanks again 🙂

  2. Can you tell me please that this chatney has how long fridge life ?
    And I think instead of tamarind we can use fresh lemon juice or lime juice too its a very good taste and smell too.

    • since coconut is used along with tamarind, it stays good for 2 to 3 days in the fridge. you can also keep in the freezer for 4 to 5 days. you can lemon juice but with lemon juice the quality of sour taste is different than with tamarind.

  3. Superb recipe.. 🙂 can we skip the tarmarind?

    • tamarind gives a slight sourness to the chutney and balances the flavor & taste of sesame seeds. insetad of tamarind, you can add a few drops of lemon juice.
