well, to be honest, i do not make this red coconut chutney recipe frequently in my house. the main reason being i have outsourced the preparation of chutney to my husband. he likes the plain coconut chutney with green chillies with a hint of roasted channa dal and coriander leaves. he makes it watery very similar to idli chutney so that it negates the use of sambar. in addition to this he likes to add sour and raw mangoes to his chutney. whereas i have chosen the traditional approach by using tamarind and also the red chillies to get the bright red colour. further to these the texture plays an important role to any chutney. i have deliberately made it thin for this chutney so that it can be used as a multipurpose chutney.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the red coconut chutney recipe. firstly, in this chutney recipe, i have used desiccated coconut as i do not have access to fresh ones. having said that, freshly grated coconut is ideal for any chutney recipe. secondly, i would heavily recommend using kashmiri or byadigi red chillies which are suitable for this recipe. other red chillies may not yield the same colour and also may turn more hot and spicy. lastly, you can make this chutney in bulk and may preserve it in the refrigerator for future use. but you may have to add hot water as it may thicken as it rests and bring it to the right consistency.
