EASY COCONUT CHUTNEY (NO ONION & GARLIC)

This coconut chutney is a great accompaniment with any South Indian savoury snack. It is really very easy to make, just blend all the ingredients and mix tempering after that. Adding tamarind to the chutney increases its shelf life little more and for that reason chutney doesn't spoil quickly. Fresh coconut is essential for the best flavour. I am addicted with this yummy chutney.....are you???

INGREDIENTS:

1 Cup Freshly Grated Coconut
2 tbsp Coriander Leaves / Cilantro (Finely Chopped)
1 tsp Roasted Cumin Seeds
1 tbsp Roasted Chana Dal (Bengal Gram)
1 tbsp Cashewnuts
2 tbsp Tamarind Pulp
3 Green Chillies
1/2" Ginger (Chopped)
1/3 Cup Warm Water
Salt to taste

FOR TEMPERING:

1 tsp Urad dal
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
2 Dried Red Chillies (Broken)
1/4 tsp Asafoetida (Hing)
8 Curry Leaves
1 tbsp Coconut Oil

METHOD:

In a mixie jar, combine coconut, coriander leaves, roasted cumin seeds, chana dal, cashewnuts, tamarind pulp, green chillies, ginger, 1/3 cup warm water and salt. Blend till it turns into a smooth paste. Remove the paste in a bowl and set it aside.
Heat coconut oil in a tadka pan. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies. Let mustard seed splutters, after that add urad dal, asafoetida, curry leaves. Saute for a minute in medium low heat. Pour this mixture on coconut paste. Stir nicely to mix well.
Enjoy this flavourful chutney with idlis, dosas, vadas or uthappam. May store it in refrigerator for a week.
