Today, I am presenting to you a tasty chutney which is ideal accompaniment with rice. This is also from mangalore cuisine. This, coconut chutney using dry red chilly is simply divine, one of the simple pleasures of life I can say. Use it with steaming hot rice with a dollop of ghee, rasam  and papads for a satisfying  meal.

Here, coconut is roasted and then used, thus it stays good for sometime. The best part of this recipe is that you can use slightly odd smelling coconuts, which tend to remain in the refigerator for some time. I think many women can relate to this fact.The roasting of the coconut gives a good aroma and a face lift to it.
