Coconut-Coriander Chutney

Here is a simple recipe for the coriander-coconut chutney..

What all you'll need:
- 1 cup Grated Coconut
- A handful of coriander leaves
- 1 or 2 Green chilies
- 2-3 small onions
- Salt to taste
- Yogurt or lemon juice (1 tsp)
- Mustard seeds
- A few curry leaves

How to make:
Grind the coconut, coriander leaves, green chilies and small onions into a fine paste or to your desired consistency. Add salt and yogurt/lemon juice. Mix well.
Pop Mustard seeds in a pan with a teaspoon oil. Add curry leaves. Give it some 10-20 seconds and pour in the coconut-coriander mixture. Switch off flame.
Check taste and add salt or yogurt/lemon juice if needed.

I don't always use yogurt for chutney. I prefer chutney's without yogurt. Some people add half an inch of ginger to it when grinding. Try this out with tamarind. But make that a thick paste. Tamarind chutney's go best with vada. Next time I make them I'll put it up...
