Coconut chutney (Kobbari Pacchadi)

Coconut Chutney
Whenever I think of Coconut chutney, I think of my grandmother. She suffers from high diabetes and hence has to abstain coconut from her diet. But she is so in love with coconut, that show her, say something like coconut chutney, she turns into an adorable child insisting on being served with it immediately. With her in my thoughts I present you this family favorite and although the recipe can vary from house to house, the variations are quite mild and almost follow the same ingredients. I usually don't go for measurements and just eye ball it. But then the recipe is more or less the same as listed below.
Basic Information
Prep Time: Under 30 min
Cook Time: Under 15 min
Yield: Around 2-3 cups of chutney
  • 1 cup coconut, grated
  • 1 cup roasted gram (dalia/pottu kadalai - available in Indian stores)
  • 2-3 green chillies (or as per taste)
  • 1/2 cup curd
  • salt to taste
  • To Temper
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp split black gram dal (urad dal)
  • 1-2 dried red chillies (as per taste)

    mmm, add an inch of ginger, a few peices of raw mango without skin and a small scallion to the grind. Tempering should be with light coconut oil and add a few fine juliens of ginger when switching off the flame. While serving top up with a pinch of roasted cumin powder.

    its good but i prefer with some modification.
    instead of raw grated coconut, i roast the grated coconut in a pan for sometime(1-2min) by doing this is can be preserved for long time and i like the flavor of that.
    in temper along with mustard seed i put saunf it gives a nice smell. but didn’t put hing to that.
