  • Mint leaves – 1 cup

  • Coconut gratings – 1/4 cup

  • Green Chillies – 4 Nos

  • Bengal gram dhal – 1 tablespoon

  • Urad dhal – 1 tablespoon

  • Tamarind – a small gooseberry size

  • Asafoetida – a small pea size

  • Salt – ¾ teaspoon or as per taste

  • Oil – 2 teaspoon


  • Start by heating oil in a kadai over medium heat. Add asafetida, dals (lentils), chillies, and tamarind to the hot oil, frying them until the dals turn golden brown and aromatic.
  • Just before you’re ready to take the kadai off the heat, add the mint leaves, reducing the stove to its lowest setting. Allow the mint leaves to fry gently in the mixture for a few seconds, ensuring they become fragrant without burning.
  • Next, incorporate the coconut into the kadai, stirring it with the other ingredients for a few more seconds until everything is lightly toasted and well combined.
  • Remove the kadai from the heat and allow the mixture to cool. Once cooled, transfer the contents to a grinder, add salt to taste, and grind everything into a thick paste.
  • Your flavorful paste is now ready to be used as a versatile accompaniment to a variety of dishes.

  1. in the ingredients u have mentioned 4 green chillies..but in the procedure u have told to add red chillies what is correct??

    thanx in advance

  2. Hi,

    It is a typographical error. It should be green chillies. Thank you for pointing out. However you can use either green or red chillies. If you use green chillies the colour will be green and if you use red chillies, the chutney look slightly dark.
