Red Coconut Chutney(Thengai Varamilagai Chutney) is a easy and quick chutney recipe. I have already posted the basic version of coconut chutney and this is with red chillies.I love ginger flavour the best in this red coconut chutney.You can serve it for idli, dosa, pongal, uthappam adai etc.Looking for a spicy chutney then check this super fiery chilli chutney recipe.

I always run out of ideas when it comes to chutneys so thought to have a compiled list of chutney recipes here in my space so that it will be easy for reference both for me and you :)

My Notes:

  • You can even add a garlic clove while grinding , gives great flavour.
  • Adjust red chillies according to the spice level you want your chutney to be.
  • Serve it with idli,dosa or even adai as I did.
  • You can even soak red chillies in hot water for few mins and then add it while grinding....this way it gets grinded smooth.

  1. hi sharmi.... nice collection of chutneys.... ;)..... have a doubt ....if red chilly grinded without roasting wont it give raw smell and in the ingredient plate next to the ginger is it tamarind?


    இதுவும் கடந்து போகும்

    1. No you will not feel the raw taste....But if you are more concerned then you can dry roast and then add.But for yrs I have been making it like this only..

  2. I don't know if you have posted this but reading this recipe reminds me of the red chutney thats made at my place. Its awesome n spicy. Just shallots coconut oil salt and red chilli grind to a coarse chutney
