Coconut chutney (2)

Coconut chutney recipe
Serves - 8

Ingredients:
Coconut - scrapings of a fresh half of a coconut
Roasted and puffed bengal-gram dal - 2 tablespoons
Green chillies - 3, small
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander leaves - 1/2 bunch, fresh
For seasoning:
Ghee or oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
Curry leaves - a sprig, fresh
Dried red chilly - 1, small

Method: Combine the first 5 ingredients and grind it to a rough paste. Make the ghee very hot, add mustard seeds to splutter, the half-broken dried red chilly to turn crisp, then curry leaves, and mix into the chutney. It is now ready to serve. If you like, also add 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice or a tablespoon of thick fresh curds to the chutney. This is excellent with dosais, idlees, and poories. Enjoy!

Anon - those are dehusked and fried bengal gram dal. You may find it at any nearby Indian grocer.

FoodCrazee - both were used; coriander leaves were more in quantity.
