1.If you have more coconut,you can skip adding roasted gram dal to this chutney.
2.I like adding few curry leaves while grinding gives unique taste and is more healthier.
3.You can also add some sambar onions/shallots to this chutney and is optional.
4.I have used bydagi red chilli for red color,also this variety is less spicy.you can increase or decrease according to your spice level.
5.If you are using frozen shredded coconut,add some hot water while grinding or microwave frozen coconut for few seconds.This will to get right chutney consistency
