  2. delicious chutney with idli or dosa..

  3. Lipsmacking chutney, fantastic and very flavourful.

  4. Your chutney recipes are good..I like your blog..

  5. HI,

    I am very impressed with your cooking style. Simple and easy. But I have a doubt. When you say 1 cup, what is the size actually. I have cups of different sizes and I am afraid if I follow the measurements in your ingredient but used the wrong size cup, everything will be ruined. Thank you.

  6. @VathsalaMy measuring cup holds 240 ml..And it is 1 cup coconut Packed

  7. If we put garlic without frying ,will there be raw smell of garlic in chutney

  8. It was really yummy arthi...I just loved it. I have started trying all ur recipes one by one.Got interest over cooking coz of u. thank u arthi :)

  9. Thanks for this lovely chutney recipe! It was absolutely delicious!! My only 1 comment about is the ground coconut doesn't mix very well with water. Hence I can't get it to be pasty like yours. My ground chutney is made up of coconut and water which is 'separated' from coconut. How do I get it to be pasty? I didn't add much water at all, yet it's not integrated very well. Pls advise. Thanks

  10. @AnonymousI would suggest you to grind the coconut with some hot water, add little water at a time and grind it. use the smaller jar of the mixer grinder

  11. Turned out great..thanks!!

  12. Hi! can I use dry coconut flakes (small ones) for this recipe? or only fresh grinded coconut? thanks
