This is one of the simple chutneys which can be
made in a jiffy.My mom uses split
black chana[Porikadalai] instead of cashews. I
have tried with porikadalai and cashews. I
liked the cashew one better because it is thick
and more flavourful than the porikadalai one.
Fresh Grated Coconut- 1 cup
Green chillies -2 -3
Ginger- 1 " slice
Water- 3/4 cup
Mustard seeds- 1tsp
Urad dal- 1tsp
Curry leaves-a few
Coconut oil-2 tsp
Salt -to taste
In a blender grind coconut,ginger,green
chillies and cashews with water in to a smooth
paste.Instead of pouring the 3/4 cup water together, start
grinding with 1/2 cup water. You can add more
water later also.
In a pan add the oil and seasonings ,when it
splutters add it to the chutney. Add salt, mix
well. Enjoy with Idli, Dosa, Upma ,Idiappam..
