Jeera Kotambarya Chitni (Cumin Coriander Chutney)



This is the chutney that I made to go with my Appeys. My strongest memories of eating Appeys with this chutney take me back to Bangalore. My aunt, at whose place I spent many vacations, used to dish out one type of dosa after another. (So many that even the ardent dosa lover in me would hope for a different item at the breakfast table!) So appeys would be that very very welcome change.

This is a very simple chutney and it goes very well with Appeys.



Ingredients:



1 tsp Cumin Seeds

1 tsp Coriander Seeds

1/3 cup scraped Coconut

3-4 Red Chillies

1 tbsp Tamarind Paste

Salt to taste



Grind all the ingredients to a fine paste using a little water.



There you go... Konkani cooking is really simple, isn't it? This chutney from the kitchens of South Canara or Dakshina Kannada goes to Asha as my third entry for the RCI Karnataka event.
