How to Make Coconut Peanut Chutney

Step 1 – Roast Peanuts and Dry Red Chilies

Step 2 – Blend the Chutney

Next, add the roughly chopped onions to the pan. Saute for approximately 2 minutes or until the raw smell disappears. Switch off the heat once the onions are slightly cooked.

Add the grated coconut to the pan and roast for a few minutes.

Step 3 – Transfer to the Grinding Jar

Let the roasted mixture come to room temperature. Once the mixture has cooled down, transfer it to a grinding jar. Add salt to the jar.

Step 4 – Grind the Chutney

Add a little water to the grinding jar and grind the chutney into a fine paste. Add the water gradually as needed.

If you add water all at once, it would be difficult to get a smooth paste. Continue grinding the mixture until the ingredients blend into a fine paste.

Step 5 – Temper the Chutney

In a small pan (tadka pan), add oil and let it heat up. Add mustard seeds, urad dal, cumin seeds, and curry leaves to the pan. Let the seeds splutter.

Tips & Tricks

1. You can make this chutney with no oil. Dry roast all the ingredients and skip the temperings. It might alter the taste a little bit but it will still taste good!

2. If you want to store the chutney, grind all the roasted ingredients and transfer them into a clean, airtight container.

Store it in the refrigerator, it will stay fresh for 1-2 days. Add the tempering to the chutney when serving.

3. While grinding, add water gradually. Avoid adding water all at once; it will not grind into a smooth paste.

4. Do not overcook the onions, they add a hint of sweetness to the chutney. If they are overcooked it will add a burnt taste.
