Horsegram and Coconut Chutney

Horsegram had never been in my favorite list at all till I tasted this chutney. I like many of these chutneys to have it sandwiched in bread.

You may want to try it ..


Horsegram: 1 cup Coconut: 1/2 cup grated
Dry chillies: 3 -4
Tamarind: 1 small marble size
Salt: To taste
Water: As needed.
Coconut oil - 2 tbsps (or virgin olive oil)
Coconut Oil - 1 tbsp (or virgin olive oil)
Mustard seed


Heat a kadai/tawa/wok dry on a stove. Once it is hot, add oil and then the horsegram and roast it till the raw smell goes off completely. Keep it aside add dry chilli and tamarind and roast it for 2-3 mins. Remove it.

Grind horsegram coarsely along with salt, tamarind, and dry chillies then add grated coconut and mix it well. To help grind it smoothly add a little water as needed. Don't dilute it. Once done to fine paste, keep it aside.

Heat a kadai with oil, allow mustard to splutter. Add this mix to the paste and blend it once again for less than a minute.

Horsegram chutney is ready.

This goes well with rice as well. You can mix this with cooked rice when it is hot. Boy!.. you've to taste it....
