~ RED COCONUT CHUTNEY (FOR IDLI/DOSA) ~



Too tough to break a Coconut ? Put it in a hot oven for 15 mins or place it in the freezer for 30 mins & the shell & coconut inside get dislodged. Then hammer it & you can get an entire coconut in minutes ...

Scrape the brown outer skin of the coconut with a potato peeler.

Shred the coconut & its ready to turn into yum chutneys.

RED COCONUT CHUTNEY RECIPE (Thanks to Smitha for sharing this recipe, this version is more spicy)

Recipe makes about 3 cups of chutney - enough to serve 3-4

1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil, add 6 dry red chillies, 1/2 of the shredded coconut & saute on medium flame for 2-3 mins. Add salt to taste.

If you want to make it less spicy, you can add 3 dry red chillies.

2. Put this mixture in a blender, add 2 cups water & blend to a fine paste.

3. Tadka for chutney - Heat 1 teaspoon oil, then add 1/2 teaspoon rai & curry leaves. Add this tadka to the chutney.

Prepare & enjoy !!!
