   I make so many varieties of coconut start with, here is the basic simple variety.

Fresh, grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Fried gram - 1/4 cup
Hing powder - a pinch
Green chillies - 2
Red chilly - 1
Ginger - a very tiny piece
Salt to taste

For seasoning:
Cooking oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Broken urad dhal - 1/2 tsp

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Chutney variety
Prep time: 10mts; Cooking  time: 5 mts

Serves 4

Keeping aside the seasoning ingredients, put the rest into the blender jar

 First, grind without adding any water. This step helps to retain the correct texture of the chutney. Then add as needed, and blend to a smooth chutney. Not too watery, not too thick.

The ground chutney

Then in the cooking oil, season the ingredients, top some fresh curry leaves too, and pour the seasoning on top. This is a perfect accompaniment for Idlis  and Dosas.
