I love this chutney since childhood. My mother and mother in law make it in the same way with minor changes. I almost always make this with idli or dosa. I never eat the coconut chutneys served in hotels. This chutney has a lovely blended taste of both roasted gram and coconut and tastes better than plain coconut chutney. It is very easy to prepare too.

Here is the recipe..

Serves 2

Ingredients :
Roasted Gram/Pottukadalai/Phutana -5 Tablespoons
Coconut - 5 Tablespoons grated
Garlic - 2 cloves
Green chilli - 1 or as per spice
Salt to taste
Water as required
Coriander leaves - 1 tablespoon chopped
Oil - 2 Tablespoons
Mustard seeds - 1/2 Teaspoon
Whole red chilli - 1
Urad daal - 1 Tablespoon
Curry leaves - 6-8

Method :
1.  In the jar of a mixer add the roasted gram, grated coconut,  garlic, green chilli and salt. Add some water and grind to a thick coarse or smooth paste as preferred.
2. Add the coriander leaves and grind fpr 2 short bursts just to combine the coriander leaves and not paste them.
3. Remove the chutney into a container or bowl and add water to turn it to desired consistency. You can serve as is or temper it using next steps.
4. In a pan, add oil, mustard seeds, red chilli, urad daal and curry leaves and temper.
5. Pour this on top of the chutney and mix.

Enjoy chutney.
