Chilli Coconut Chutney/ Chammanthi

I know that every family have their own style of making chammanthi/chutney, my family's favorite will be the thicker version that my mom and aunt grind using grinding stone. The taste of the chammanthi is so delicious, I can eat more than one dosa at a time. Okay without wasting any time let me bring you to the step by step pictorial on how to make Chilli Coconut Chammanthi;


Ingredients:

9 dried red chilli (depending on invididual preference)
1 cup of grated coconut
A small piece of ginger
4 garlic pods
3 pcs of shallots
Sugar to taste
Salt to taste

Dry roast dried chilli, ginger, garlic, shallots and let it cool for a while.



Firstly take grated coconut and grind coarsely


Now add all the dry roasted ingredients until fine


Now add sugar and salt


See perfectly ground chammanthi is ready


Collect the ground chammanthi to a ball


Now our Chilli Coconut Chammanthi is ready to be served, best eaten with hot idli and dosa

Do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
