The best part is that the restaurant style coconut chutney can easily be prepared at home. It calls for a few ingredients only and gives absolutely delish coconut chutney. Serve it with idli sambar or masala dosa.
Coconut: Desiccated coconut has been used to make the coconut chutney. The reason being the coconut chutney served at the restaurants is white in color. If you want to make the chutney using fresh coconut, discard its brown skin and use only the white part of the coconut.
Ginger: I have flavored the chutney with a little ginger. You can also add in little garlic if you want.
Peanuts: I have used a handful of skinned salted peanuts. It is important to use skinned peanuts to maintain the color of the chutney. You can also use roasted and skinned chana.
Salt: The chutney has been seasoned with a little salt.
Lemon Juice: Lemon juice is added to balance the flavors of the chutney.
Tempering: The perfect tempering is added on the chutney and it adds so much to the chutney.
Serve it with idli sambar for a weekend breakfast.
