This is THE quickest of all the chutneys I make. Just transfer everything into the blender/mixer and grind it. Tah Dah!  I make it with fresh coconut or desiccated coconut, like whichever is available in my kitchen. I follow the same procedure for both.

Most of the times, I start cooking the snack/breakfast and at the end of it, I start with blending this chutney. Its that easy and quick!! And thats the reason I name it as Instant Coconut Chutney!!

You can skip the tempering part in the procedure which doesn’t make a lot of difference with the taste of the chutney/dip.

It’s mainly used as an accompaniment with South Indian breakfast items like Idli, Dosa, Uthappam, Fritters or as a dip for any fried/baked savoury snacks.

Before starting to cook, don’t forget to see the Tips mentioned in the end.
