Coconut chutney

Chutneys are the best accompaniment for any dosas/crepes!
Wish to learn a simple coconut chutney?
Here you go

Coconut-1 cup
Green chillies-3 slit (based on the amount of spiciness/hotness in the chutney you require)
Garlic-1 pod sliced
Onion-1 small chopped
Tamarind paste-1/4 tsp
Oil-2 tsp
Salt to taste
Water-1 cup or as needed based on the thickness of chutney desired.

For seasoning:
Dry Red chilly-1
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Mustard seeds-1 tsp
Oil-2 tsp

Take a pan,add 2tsp oil.Let it get heated.
Once hot add green chillies,garlic and onion to it and fry till onion is just translucent.
Now grind these fried green chillies,garlic and onion along with coconut,tamarind paste,salt and water.
Transfer it into a bowl.If you prefer less thick chutney,just add little water to it and give a good mix,accordingly adjust salt.
Now in a pan add 2 tsp oil, when hot add mustard seeds,dry red chilly and curry leaves.
Once mustard seeds splatter take it off the stove and season the ground mixture with it.
Your chutney is ready to serve.
Goes well with dosas/crepes.
