Preparation :

 
  • Grind all ingredients in a wet grinder without any water to make a thick paste.

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.
