The 5 minute Coconut Chutney | How to make South Indian Style Coconut Chutney | Easy Recipe


Today I am going to share my MOM's recipe of a quickest ever coconut chutney. 

You can prepare this delicious chutney in just 10 minutes. All you need is coconut and green chillies. 
My North Indian friends always give me a puzzled look whenever I share this recipe . They always thought that Coconut Chutney was something very complicated to make. 

They ask me questions like"Are you sure the chutney would taste good without ginger? Without garlic? No curd?....."

Infact I told them that I use basically only three ingredients on the days I am pressed for time - coconut,greenchillies and salt. 
This  delicious  chutney is a great accompaniment to Idli,Dosa, Vada,Pongal, Adai,Idiappam,Masala Dosa,Rava Dosa and the list goes on....

Though there are 1000 variations that you can make in this chutney, it is necessary to know the basics first. Also I like to keep things simple and uncluttered.  

A few pointers for a fool proof chutney:

1.Fresh coconut gives the best taste. Try to use fresh. But in case you are using stored coconut,please soak it in hot water for a few minutes.

2. I have used green chillies for spice. For those who want a little more spice, you can add red chillies in the tempering.

3. Do not omit the curry leaves as they definetly enhance the taste. But grinding it along with the chutney will alter the colour and the taste.

4.I have used the chutney dal(roasted gram fal) just for thickening. I sometimes omit using this, if ai have adequate coconut. Grind the chutney well o get a smooth paste.

5. Again, depending upon your family preference, you can add less or more water. My hubby likes it watery, so I add water and get a smooth consistency of chutney. This step is up to you. 

YOU ARE JUST THREE STEPS away from this delicious yet simple coconut chutney.

Here is the recipe tutorial for you!!

Easy,is'nt it???

I am sure you are going to bring more smiles!


With love,
