Coconut Chutney


1 cup freshly ground Coconut -- I used the frozen kind
a handful Peanuts
3 to 4 Green Chillies -- you can use less or more based on your spice preference

1/4 inch Ginger piece
1 tsp Lime Juice


Mustard Seeds
Cumin Seeds
Urid Dal
Channa Dal
Red Chillies


Grind the coconut, peanuts, green chillies and ginger. Add as much or as little water as you'd like, add salt and blend everything well. I don't like my chutney too runny, so I only used a little bit of water, probably less than a 1/4 cup.
In a tadka pan, add about 1 tbsp of oil and add all the tadka ingredients and cook until the mustard seeds splutter and the dals brown.
Place the grounded mixture in a serving bowl, top with a little bit of lime juice and add the tadka. Mix everything well.
This chutney is great with dosas and idlis.
