Day 5: Coconut Onion Chutney - a delicious accompaniment


One of my recent posts was instant rava idli that I served with this coconut onion chutney. I had mentioned in the post that you can actually put together this quick and delicious chutney in the time that the idlis get steamed and you are all set for a tasty meal in minutes. So here is the recipe to a coconut chutney recipe that is Mom’s recipe. This is one that is made very often at my in-laws place too and I just love the taste and flavour an onion can add to a simple coconut chutney.

Ingredients:
Coconut- 1 cup (grated, you may also use dessicated coconut instead of fresh coconut)
Onion – 1 (small, cut into long slices)
Kashmiri red chilli powder – 1 tsp (if you like your chutney real spicy you could add 2 dry red whole chillies instead)
Salt – to taste
For tempering:
Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
Curry leaves – 8 to 10
Oil – 1 tsp
Method:
1-Grind together the coconut, chopped onion and kashmiri chilli powder in your mixer.
2-Take out in a bowl and add salt to taste.
3-In a pan add 1 tsp of oil. Add the mustard seeds and curry leaves. When the mustard seeds begin to split, take the pan off the fire. Add in the ground coconut mixture and mix with the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Serve with idlis or dosas of your choice.
