Here’s another coconut chutney version. Coconut chutney is really very much like hummus in terms of how you flavour it. Add whatever ingredients you like, whip it all together and you have a nice accompaniment for snacks.
I do make coconut chutneys quite often. And if you haven’t had any coconut chutney yet, you should try it. It’s good healthy raw food which is also very tasty!
This one is a slightly sweeter version.
½ fresh coconut meat, finely sliced
½ tablespoon of tamarind pulp (separate the seeds by mixing with a little water)
4-5 stems fresh mint chopped
4-5 large dates (or more if you like!)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
¼ teaspoon salt
2-3 green/red chillies (optional)
Juice from ½ lime (optional)
40 ml water
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and grind to a smooth consistency.
- Add more water as needed to make a thick paste.
Have this with poppadums; they’re great!
