  • thengai/coconut – 1/2 finely chopped
  • pachchai milagai/green chillies- 6/7 as preferred

Method of Preparation

  1. Clean the coriander well
  2. Chop all ingredients for easy grinding in the blender
  3. Add salt and water and blend to a smooth paste
  4. This thuvayal too doesn’t need thaalippu or seasoning with oil and mustard seeds like other chutneys. Still if one prefers, go ahead. 
  5. One can even substitute the ginger with fresh garlic- That tastes awesome but don’t forget to brush your teeth or use a mouth freshener while talking to people.

For a tangier dip, add gooseberries; adjust green chillies as per family preference.
