Measuring cup used 1 cup = 250 ml

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil Or olive oil

Extra Tempering:


  • Add 1 teaspoon of oil to a pan, add the green chilies and moringa leaves and saute for a minute until the leaves wilt.Dont overcook.Keep aside.
  • In a blender take shredded coconut ,roasted green chillies-moringa leaves mixture , tamarind ,ginger ,salt and blend into a smooth paste by adding ½ cup of water.
  • Transfer in the serving bowl.Pour the tempering. Moringa chutney is ready and can be served with dosa, idli or chapati.


Variations & Tips:

  1. If you dont have tamarind replace it with lemon juice or curd.For authentic chutney recipe tamarind is used.
  2. I sometimes like adding few curry leaves while grinding gives unique taste and is more healthier.
  3. If you are using frozen shredded coconut, add some hot water while grinding or microwave frozen coconut for few seconds before grinding.This will get you right chutney consistency.
