  • Cut shallots in half.
  • Heat the oil in a pan or a kadai.
  • Add the shallots and saute for a short time.
  • When the colour of the shallots start changing, add the grated coconut and the chillies and saute them, till the raw smell of coconut no longer comes.
  • Once the coconut also turns colour, switch off the flame.
  • Grind this mixture along with salt and a little quantity of water in a mixer grinder.
  • :- Serve with idlis or dosas.
  • :- If water is less, the result will be a very dry chutney. :- Ensure that water quantity is not high, otherwise, the chutney will be very watery. :- If shallots are not available, it can be replaced with onions (savala). One large onion will be sufficient for one half of the coconut.

    I came across this recipe accidently. Since the coconut chutney`s I prepare never came out well, I thought I`ll give this simple recipe a try. It was fabulous! Thanks a lot for posting this recipe.
