Onion Coconut Chutney – can be made in a jiffy!!

Well, I am back with a post after a very very long time. Was extremely busy migrating my site to a new host and all that. Finally, got a chance to post this recipe. Very often we get bored with the usual accompaniments that go with the evergreen idlis/dosas. I have already posted a lot of different chutney recipes like Apple Chutney, Sweet Corn Chutney etc. (Click here for all chutney recipes). This time it is a very simple chutney recipe that goes very well with idlis/dosas – Onion Coconut Chutney. There are two versions of onion chutney that my mother prepares. One with just onions and this one which uses ingredients very similar to coconut chutney but with some differences. Off to the recipe now.


Serves: 4

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 minutes


Onions – 2 medium sized chopped
Coconut – 12-15 bite sized pieces
Roasted Gram / Dalia / Pottukadalai – 2.5 tbsp
Dry Red Chillies – 4/5
Salt – to taste
Oil – 1 tsp
Curry Leaves – a few
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp


1. Blend all ingredients except oil, curry leaves and mustard seeds to a paste adding little water.
2. Temper mustard seeds and curry leaves in oil and add to the chutney.
