This is a favorite chutney in my house. usually green chutney's are made of coriander,mint,green chillies,ginger and lemonjuice and thats what is used for sandwiches . but we being goans and goans having lots of homegrown coconut in their house (offcourse in goa- not in mumbai, i have to buy my coconuts). The goan chutney is altered to suit the raw material ready at home .
One cup coconut grated
2 green chilies
½ cup coriander leaves
3 cloves garlic
1 inch ginger
marble size ball of tamarind
½ tsp sugar.
Very easy, just grind all the above ingredients with minimum amount of water .
Your chutney is ready . its is a very delicious spread for bread sandwiches.
In the picture you see I have used a loaf of garlic bread which I toasted in an oven and
Then spread the chutney.
I use this chutney with jowar,bajra and nachini bhakri (these are thick rotis which are very healthy , bhakri is prepared daily in villages to provide the hard working farmers the robust meals that they need after a hectic day in the fields.
We make it here in cities too but once in a while . but they are nutrition packed.
I will do a post on the bhakri and show you how they puff up on a gas stove.
In villages a bhakri is done on a chulha or a fire which is lit using wood sticks .
This chutney is very versatile you can even have it with fried fish it tastes yummy!!
You can have it with snack items like crispies and khakras too…
