Coconut Chutney/Thengai Chutney [for Idlis & dosas]

Coconut chutney is a perfect accompaniment for idlis and dosas and is made in all South Indian homes. We do make different varieties of coconut chutney and this is one among them. I will be updating different types of coconut chutneys in my future post. Click here for other delicious chutney varieties.

So here’ s the typical South Indian coconut chutney…

As needed

For Tempering

Oil
2 tsp

¼ tsp
Urad dal
½ tsp

Method

Grind the pottu kadalai, green chillies, ginger, grated coconut, salt together without adding water. Later on add required amount of water and grind it to smooth paste. Transfer it to a bowl.

Adjust the consistency of the chutney according to your need, it can be made thick or thin. We generally prefer thick consistency.

Transfer the tempering to the chutney.

  2. ஆஹா, தேங்காய் + பொட்டுக்கடலை + பச்சைமிளகாய் + இஞ்சி + கருவேப்பிலை சேர்த்து காரசாரமாக அரைத்து பின் கடுகு உளுந்தம்பருப்பு தாளித்த வெள்ளை வெளேர் சலவைச் சட்னியா ..... இட்லி தோசைக்கு தொட்டுக்கொள்ள மணக்க மணக்க ஜோரா இருக்குமே.

    சூப்பர் பதிவு தான். பாராட்டுக்கள்.

    இப்படிக்கு,
