Coconut - Olives Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 14 / #100chutneys

After Murukku Tomato chutney, here comes another interesting and unique combination of chutney using coconut and olives. Yes, you heard it right! It is olives! It might sound weird but the taste was absolutely refreshing. All you need for this chutney is just 3 ingredients and it pairs up perfect with Idly and Dosa. No cooking technique is also involved in this recipe apart from the Tadka. The freshly grated coconut, olives, and green chillies are directly made into fine paste by adding the required quantity of salt and water. Since my family members love tadka in chutneys, I have included otherwise, it is completely optional. Make sure to adjust the quantity of green chilli according to taste bud. Serve the chutney immediately as soon as it is ground as all the ingredients are directly used without any cooking process.

Ingredients :

1/2 Cup Grated Coconut 
5 - 6 Olives ( I have used green olives ) 
2 - 3 Green chillies, chopped ( Adjust according to taste bud ) 
Salt to taste 

For Tadka :

1 Tsp Oil 
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds 
1/2 Tsp Urad dal 
A pinch of Hing powder 
A sprig of Curry leaf

Method :

Add grated coconut in a blender along with olives and green chillies.

Grind into fine paste by adding the required quantity of salt and water.

Once done, transfer it to a bowl and keep aside.

For Tadka, heat oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add urad dal followed by curry leaf and hing powder.

Add tadka to the prepared chutney and serve. 

Serving Options :

Serve with Idly or Dosa.
