Notes :

  • If not using grated coconut, then chop the coconut flesh into small pieces and grind it. Next add the green chillies and roasted gram and proceed.
  • For additional flavour you can add ginger along with coconut and grind. You can also use garlic instead of ginger.
  • Adjust the green chillies as per your heat tolerance level. You can add red chillies while tempering.
  • My mom uses chopped onion in the tempering. I personally like those onions in chutney.
  • You can garnish with chopped cilantro too.
