This is a very famous chutney in North Kanara. My mother prepares this with coconut dosa(soyi polo) or rice roti(alayle pita rotti). But some people make this with urad daal dosa or as a side dish with rice. Ilike this chutney-coconut dosa combination very much.
4-5 cloves garlic
1/2 cup fresh/frozen coconut
4-5 red chillies
1/4 tea spn tamarind extract or 1 piece of tamarind
Heat oil and fry garlic till brown (always remove the skin before frying garlic. Otherwise the garlic may splutter. My neighbour had serious burns on her face due to this). This step has to be done with extra care since the oil may catch fire sometimes.
Grind the fried garlic with coconut,red chillies,tamarind,coconut and salt.
Serve chutney with hot dosa.
