Coconut chutney is a quite common dip served for South Indian breakfast items like idli, dosa, uthappam etc. I added mint to this for enhancing its flavour. This is a NoOnion NoGarlic chutney recipe, like my other chutney recipes.

We had this chutney as a dip for Dibba Rotte (link⇒ Dibba Rotte / Plumpy Roti (Andhra style)) , as shown in the last pic at the end.

Before starting to cook, don’t forget to see the Tips which I mentioned at the end.

  • Add sufficient water and grind them to a coarse paste.
  • In the same pan, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and all the ‘Ingredients for tempering’.
  • Sautee them until they splutter, switch the flame off , add this to the chutney and mix well. Done!!

Tips:

  • If you wish to, you can add the onion and garlic pieces to the pan while frying.
  • In case you are using tamarind pulp add it directly to the blender not to the pan.
  • Adjust the salt, spice and sourness according to your taste.
  • The tempering part can be avoided too (just like I did). But, it would definitely give extra flavour to the chutney.
  • I always prefer to all hot water while grinding the chutney for it to stay for long.
  • This chutney stays good upto a week when stored in refrigerator.

Result:

  • This chutney is spicy in taste and has minty flavour.
  • It is generally used as a dip for plain rice or for any breakfast items like idli, dosa, upma, uthappam, etc. 
  • We had this chutney as a dip for Dibba Rotte (link⇒ Dibba Rotte / Plumpy Roti (Andhra style) ) , as shown in the last pic below.
