In This Recipe


  1. Cut each clove of garlic lengthwise into 3-4 pieces. Heat about 1-2 tsp of oil in a pan. On a medium flame, fry garlic and dried red chillies until golden brown.
  2. Add shredded coconut and sesame seeds and fry until it gives a mild aroma of coconut and sesame. Keep stirring the mixture to avoid excessive and sudden browning/burning of the coconut.
  3. Turn the heat off and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes. Then mix in the flaxseed powder.
  4. Transfer the above mixture in a dish and set it aside to cool.
  5. When the mixture is cool, put it in a blender, add salt, sugar, black pepper powder, and lemon juice (adjust for taste) and blend everything to a coarse powder. If you like it fine, blend further.
  6. Store the chutney in an airtight container and refrigerate.
