Coconut Chutney

I could not even imagine a morning without Coconut Chutney. It is the fastest chutney I can ever make. It goes well with anything for breakfast, say it, Idli or Dosa or Upma or Kitchadi or Adai..

Grated Half coconut
Pottu Kadalai (Roasted Channa Dhal) 4 tsp
Chopped Green Chillies 2-3
Garlic Pod 1
Ginger (optional)  a small piece
Salt ½ tsp or to taste

For Seasoning:
Mustard Seeds ½  tsp
Split Urad dhal ¼  tsp
Curry leaves  5
Chopped Pearl onions (lengthwise)  3


Grind Coconut, Roasted Channa dhal, Chillies, Garlic, Ginger with salt and water.
Heat oil in a pan. When it is hot add mustard seeds.
Wait till they stop popping up, reduce flame. Add Urad dhal, Pearl Onions and Curry leaves.
Fry till they turn slightly brown.
Add the seasoning to the ground paste and add enough water.

Serve with Idli or Dosa
Serves: 3-4
