Recipes - Veggies - Chutney


               Here is a typical Kerala chutney recipe - katta chammanthi or solid coconut chutney :-) It is usually served with kanji or dosa, idly or rice.



Coconut Chammanthi
Spicy Coconut Chutney



Kerala Katta Chammanthi




Ingredients :

Grated Coconut 1.5 cup
Red Onion 1 inch cube
Green Chillies 3 nos
Curry Leaves

3 or 4 leaves


1/2 inch piece


to taste




Preparation :

  • Grind all ingredients in a wet grinder without any water to make a thick paste.
  • Make the chutney into a ball with your hand - that is the traditional way of serving this chammanthi.
  • Serve  with kanji, dosa, idly or rice.



Note :


           The same chutney can be made with more water to make the liquid coconut chutney that is usually served with dosas and idlis. In the case of the liquid red coconut chutney, remember to add tadka at the end - pop mustard seeds in hot oil in a small skillet and then add dried red chillies, 2 pearl onions chopped and curry leaves. When the onions turn light brown, add everything to the chutney and stir well.
