Coconut Chutney Recipe / Hotel Coconut Chutney Recipe

Coconut chutney takes place in our breakfast menu quite often, since hubby loves it so much. I make quite a few variations to it..Check out my coconut coriander chutney, coconut chilli chutney, coconut garlic chutney and my keralan style coconut chutney..You can also check out my coconut malli thogayal too..

This version is a white coconut chutney like the one which you get in hotel. I will share a recipe of getti chutney soon which they serve with set dosa or bhajji bonda..It is a slight variation from this..

Ginger - 1 inch piece
Salt to taste
Water as needed

For Seasoning:
Coconut Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - a sprig


Take all ingredients in a blender and make it into a fine puree by adding some water.

Pour that into a bowl and adjust the consistency with water.

  11. Hi Aarthi,
    Thank you for this recipe. Tried it, was really nice.
    I used desiccated coconut soaked in hot water for 15 min as I did not have fresh ones and it was equally tasty.


  12. hey aarthi,
    Tried ur recipe and it was perfect..

  13. First in ever i made white chtuney !!i normally make red chutney i felt this was easier n tastier as in red chutney i add small onions ( escaped from that part😆) it came out well n lil champ loved it well thank u aarthi !!

  14. Tried this version of chutney today. It was perfect. Thanks!

  15. Hi Arti,
    Just wanted to know the chana dal is the one we can eat in chewda right not the one which we need to soak and cook.

  16. Traditionally we do not use garlic in coconut chutney and restaurants seldom do. A useful tip when grinding is to grind the roated gram dal (pottu kadalai) on its own without water before adding all the other ingredients to it. This gives the chutney more body.
