Udupi Restaurant Style Coconut Chutney | White Coconut Chutney Recipe even pairs deliciously with some Adai dosa which is made with mixed lentils and rice.

One spoonful of this stuff and you will be addicted! It has a mild punch and an tangy aftertaste, you’ll soon know how??! 😉

Before I forget, this crispy, golden brown dosa in the pictures is made using my no-fail homemade Idli-dosa batter, recipe for which is right here!

Udupi Restaurant Style Coconut Chutney | White Coconut Chutney Recipe uses the most basic pantry essentials and takes under 30 minutes to prepare from scratch!  The only difficult part (for me) is to get that coconut out of its shell! My trusty help almost always is around to do the task and from there on I’m pretty comfortable 😉

Anyways, if you’ve tasted this chutney before over at a Udupi joint, you’ll know that the texture is really smooth and the consistency is slightly thin and runny. That’s how it’s supposed to be. Make it too thick and you wont like the texture. Make it too runny and it will drown your Idli/ dosa. So just eyeball the quantity of water while you are grinding this chutney!

Looks interesting right??!!! But the most interesting part is that my Mom can break a coconut in two clean portions in one shot! I witnessed it just last week when she was visiting me! Bammm! And we have two halves! Just like that 🙂 Mummy ka magic, lol! They looked so good, I did an impromptu ingredient flat lay, styled and shot, all in under 5 minutes flat! You gotta do what you gotta do 😉

Anyways, let’s do this.

For the Chutney

Break the coconut, wash it and chop it or grate it. Set it aside.

Heat oil in a small tadka pan. Sauté the white lentils (tukda urad dal) in the oil until it’s aromatic but make sure it doesn’t turn brown. It should remain pale.

Next, take the coconut, sautéed lentils (urad dal) with its oil, salt to taste, dalia, tamarind pulp and water as needed to blend these into a smooth paste.

Add some more water if needed to make it slightly runny.

For the Tempering

Heat the oil in a small tadka pan, add hing, mustard seeds, curry leaves, methi seeds and whole red chilies. Let them splatter about for a minute and the add this to the chutney. Mix well. Serve with Idli or dosa.
