  1. hi
    my son loves this version of chutney.he wants to take it in his lunch box.can we send coconut chutney in lunch box?its summer time wont the chutney get spoilt.

    • Hi Amna,

      Nice to hear that you son likes this chutney. To keep this chutney for long hours, do not add more water while grinding. Fry all the ingredients and put it in mixie and grind it without adding any water first. It will become coarse powder. Then add very little water and grind it for few seconds and remove. This is like Thuvaiyal and stay good for more hours.
