Garlic Chutney

 Garlic Chutney



This dry powder mix of dry coconut, peanuts and garlic with few spices can add taste to any meal and can be stored for a month in an air tight jar. Don't worry, it is so tasty, it won't last that long! There is a wet version of Garlic chutney too which is very tasty but do give this dry chutney a try and you will be happy you made it!

This chutney goes very well with Vada Paav. Add some yogurt to it and serve it with Methi Parathas or Spinach Parathas. You can just sprinkle it over a toasted and buttered slice of bread for a quick snack or just eat it with any of your not-so-favorite vegetable to make it tasty!


To make Garlic Chutney, we need-

Dry coconut, grated- 1/2 cup

Peanuts- 2 tbspn

Garlic- 4-5 big cloves. Take few extra if the size of cloves is very small.

Sesame seeds- 1 tbspn

Cumin seeds- 1 tbspn

Red Chili powder- 1 tbspn or as per taste

Salt to taste


  1. Heat a pan on medium heat and add 2 tablespoon peanuts and roast them for 4-5 minutes. Remove them in a plate.
  2. In the same pan, take 1/2 cup grated dry coconut and roast it for 3-4 minutes till it is light brown. Remove it in separate plate.
  3. In same pan, take 1 tablespoon sesame seeds and roast them for 4-5 minutes till they change their color slightly and are nicely roasted. Remove them and put them in plate along with coconut.
  4. In same pan, take 1 tablespoon cumin seeds and roast them for 3-4 minutes. Once the cumin seeds are nicely roasted, remove them and put them in plate with coconut too. 
  5. In the same pan, take 4-5 cloves of garlic and roast them for few minutes. Once they are roasted, remove them and put them in a plate with coconut.
  6. Now let it all cool down completely.
  7. Remove the peanuts skin if you like but I like to keep them on as they are nutritious that way and also gives good color to the chutney. 
  8. Add peanuts, grated coconut, sesame seeds, cumin seeds, garlic, red chili powder and salt to taste in a small pot of grinder meant for dry chutney.
  9. Grind it all together and our Garlic chutney is ready to serve.

Tips-

  1. Chop garlic too in small pieces if you like but make sure that they don't get cooked while roasting.
  2. Adjust red chili powder as per your taste. Try to use Kashmiri Red Chili powder as that will give nice color to the chutney without making it too spicy.
