Usually the chutney powder with coconut is very popular among Konkanis. It can be either with or without garlic. The one without garlic has a greater shelf life compared to the one with garlic. But both have their own tastes. My brother loved the garlic one, so my mom always makes it for him.
Coconut (Preferably use dry coconut) 1 cup
Tamarind 1 tea spn
Garlic cloves (small ones) 10-12
Chilli powder 2 tea spns
If using the big garlic cloves available in USA, use around 4-5 cloves.
Roast coconut (without oil). Grind it with garlic and tamarind (do not add water).
Now add chilli powder and salt, grind again.
Store it in airtight container. This remains good for around 1 month.
Preparation time : 15mins
