No oil coconut chutney podi/Powder is really a lip smacking one compared our usual south indian coconut chutney.The highlight is it will remain fresh upto one month ,so just prepare it in bulk and store it in an airtight container and use it whenever required.It save a lot of time ,isn’t it?

Dry roasting coconut will actually helps to increase it’s shelf life.Always use a very clean and dry spoon while serving chutney as an accompaniment for South Indian breakfasts.

Some people don’t like the flavor tamarind ,you can skip it if you dont want to give a tangy flavor.I personally like it’s flavor ,so a small piece tamarind was added while grinding.


Grated coconut-2 cups

Dry red chillies-10

Curry leaves -1 cup

Tamarind -small sized

Asafoetida-1/4th tsp



  • To begin with dry roast coconut for 4-5 minutes in a low to medium flame .
