Coconut, Onion Chutney

Coconut, Onion Chutney

This recipe I am sharing today is going to become your absolute favourite! I love coconut, be it in my curries, rice, smoothies or even in chutneys and this simple chutney compliments anything and everything. I use it for my sandwiches, for my rice recipes (coming soon) and as a side in my daily meals.

I make this chutney in mortar pestle and I would highly recommend using that however if you don’t have it then use a food processor.

This is how you make this simple chutney.


  • 1 cup freshly grated coconut
  • 1 small onion roughly chopped
  • 4 or to taste green chillies roughly chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp jaggery powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp lime juice


Place the onions, green chillies and cumin seeds in a mortar and start to make a chutney using a pestle. Will take some time to break down the onions, once it breaks down add in the garlic and continue till garlic is slightly chunky.

Now add in the coconut, salt and jaggery. Continue till everything is mixed in with the coconut and oil is released.

Add the lime juice and mix well. Store it in a fridge in a glass jar up to 1 week or in the freezer up to 3 months.

Serve with anything. 🙂
