  5. 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!

    Hey Shilpa
    Great work,keep it up! really enjoi reading your authentic recipes.
    I make the same ginger chutney but instead of tamarind i add 2 tbs yoghurt and a tsp sugar,no udad dal.

  8. 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

  9. hey Shilpa,
    is there a way to store the unused coconut? which can b used in the nest month or so for makin fish curry or somethin?
