This is my favorite of all chutneys,Keralites usually have this with kanji (rice porridge),dosas or iddlis.Back home,a mortar and pestle is used to prepare this.But this can be done in an Indian mixer too,of course you have to compromise a little on the taste.I think this can be done in food processor too,haven’t tried though.
Thenga Chammanthi served with dosa
See the recipe ..
Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
Dried Red Chillies (unakka mulagu) – 4
Ginger – a small piece
Tamarind (Vaalan puli) – gooseberry(Nellikka) sized piece
Curry leaves – a few
Salt – as needed
Grind all these together in a mixer,sprinkling little water in between.Shape it like a ball and serve with dosa or Kanji.
