Coconut chutney is a delicious creamy vegan chutney from South India. It can also be used as a vegan dressing or spread to add that coconuty flavor to your dish.

What You'll Need
  • 1.5 cups Grated coconut(fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons Split Bengal gram
  • 2 pieces Green chilies
  • 1 inch pieces Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Mustard seeds
  • 5-6 pieces Curry leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Cooking oil
  • Salt, as per taste
  • 1/4 cup Water
  1. Dry roast Bengal gram over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or till they become fragrant.
  2. In a grinder, add coconut, roasted Bengal gram, green chilies, ginger, salt, water and grind to make a paste. Add water to adjust the consistency. Take out in a bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Once they start crackling, add the curry leaves. Saute for 10 seconds (don’t let them burn) and turn the pan over the bowl to temper the chutney.
  4. Serve with any South Indian dish like idli/ vada/ dosa or use as a vegan spread or dressing.
