[…] Method: Cook pumpkin pieces (ripe bananas are directly used without cooking). Grind pumpkin/bananas, Jaggery(or sugar) to a smooth paste(preferrably dont use water). Add wheat flour and salt to the paste and kneed the dough(Puri dough consistency). Preferrably keep the dough overnight. Make puris(a bit thicker than normal puri) and deep fry in oil. Serve hot with chutney. […]

Shilpa,
Really good site! A real treasure of good old konkani recipes.
One variation for the ginger chutney(goan style) is to add a little sugar. Gives it a sugary gingery taste!

Can the coconut chutney be made using shredded coconut available in the stores? We do not get fresh coconut too often where we live.
How do I use shredded coconut – do I need to soak it or something?

Shilpa: You mean the dry shredded coconut? The taste will be very different from fresh/frozen coconut. You could try soak it in little hot water and use
