Here is a version of coconut chutney, where you can replace a portion of putani / split peas..If you are more cautious about cholesterol, you can go for this version! It goes well with Dosa, Roti, Parathas, etc.


Ingredients:
Grated coconut- 3/4 cup
Green chilles 3 - 4
curry leaves 10 - 12 (leaves)
Small piece of ginger
Coriander leaves - 1/4 th cup
Salt to taste
Small piece of tamarind / 1/4 spoon of tamarind pulp
For seasoning: oil and mustard seeds
Split peas - 2 spoon

Procedure:
Heat 1 spoon of oil in a pan, add whole green chillies and fry it for about 2 minutes. Then, add ginger, coriander leaves, and curry leaves, fry them for a while and remove from flame.
If you want to use less coconut, you can add split peas while frying the ingredients and can reduce the qty of coconut to 1/2 cup.
Grind these fried items with grated coconut, tamarind and salt in a mixer by adding little water.
Heat little oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, switch off the flame, and add the seasoning to the chutney.
