Thengai(Coconut) Thuvaiyal-Parcel chutney

parcel chutney
This variety of coconut chutney is made in our family for packing during travel. This would stay perfect atleast for two days if you use clean and dry hands and spoon to serve. I prefer this as side dish for idly when i have to travel with my little one.


  • Coconut-1 cup grated
  • Red Chilly-2
  • Tamarind-A Small piece
  • Salt-To taste
  • Oil-To temper

To temper:

  • Mustard seeds-1/2 tbsp
  • Urad dhal-1/2 tbsp
  • Curry leaves
