Saravana Bhavan Hotel – Coconut Chutney Recipe with step wise pictures.
Delicious coconut chutney which taste just like hotel coconut chutney. It is pure white and taste amazing with idli, dosa, upma or pongal.
I always ask my husband how the hotel coconut chutney looks so white and taste so delicious. It was my long term search to make hotel style coconut chutney at home. Few days back hubby came home with a recipe from his friend who is in hotel industry. He gave me few tips.
1)Try to use young tender coconut. Not so tender. it should be little young coconut.
2)Grate coconut till the white part alone. Dont scrape it too much so the coconut gets the brown parts.
3)Dont add anything except green chillies. That too very less green chillies.
4)Make seasoning using coconut oil and very less spices.
I made the coconut chutney and it turned out super white and super delicious.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
