Method to make dry roasted gram chutney:

  1. Lightly roast the grated coconut on low flame for a few minutes till it is light brown. Roasting enhances the taste and flavor and also preserves the chutney for a long time. If you are sure to finish the chutney within 10 days you may omit roasting.
  2. Grind together the coconut and the other ingredients to a coarse powder.

Tips :

  • It is better to grind the chutney a little coarse. I like that better than a too fine powder.
  • You may add a table spoonful roasted groundnuts (peanuts) or til (sesame seeds) to this chutney.
  • Dried curry leaves improve the taste and the nutritional value.
