Kobbari Pachadi or Coconut Chutney

Kobbari pachadi is one of our favorite chutneys. We prefer to have it with rice. Sometimes  I make coconut chutney for idly and dosa using green chillies.
Let's see how this chutney is made :)
What you need:

Fresh coconut cubed-1 cup
Deseeded dry red chilly-6
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
Coriander seeds-1 teaspoon
Bengal gram dal or chana dal-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Curry leaves- a few
Tamarind- a small berry sized
Peeled garlic cloves-a few
Salt to taste 
Oil-1 tablespoon


  1. Heat the oil in a nonstick pan and add dry chilli. Fry them for few seconds on a low flame and add turmeric powder,  bengal gram dal, cumin seeds and  coriander seeds one by one.
  2. Stir them for a minute and add garlic cloves, tamarind, coconut pieces and curry leaves fry for one more minute.
  3. Mix them well and turn off the stove and allow them to cool.
  4. Grind them into a paste by adding salt and sufficient water.
  5. Transfer it into a serving bowl and have it with hot rice and papad. Enjoy :)
Note: You can replace garlic with asafoetida or hing.
