Coconut Chutney

Coconut chutney is a popular accompaniment prepared in every South Indian household for idli, dosa, pongal, kichadi, vadai or bajji. Please check my restaurant style coconut chutney recipe as below:

Total Time Taken : 3 min


  • Coconut pieces – 9 Nos. (each 1 inch)
  • Green chillies – 2 Nos.
  • Roasted Bengal gram (pottu kadalai) – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp



  • Scrape off brown skin of coconut pieces using peeler.
  • In a mixer-grinder jar add green chillies, coconut, fried grams and salt.
  • Grind them without adding water for 15 sec.
  • Add 10 ml water and grind into a smooth paste.
  • Transfer to a bowl and serve with tempering.


  • You can use red chillies also in coconut chutney and leave fried grams; if you are using red chillies no need to make sambar.

Please note:

  • If you want chutney to be more spicier, add more chillies along with little tamarind.
  • You can also add shallot & garlic or just any one of them.
  • You can add ginger to make it refreshing.
