Lassune chutney pitti ( Dry Garlic Chutney Powder)
I learnt this from my mother in law. She is an expert in chutney powders and used to prepared and give us bottles as and when we visited them . Without chutney powder our lunch is not complete. This can be stored for a month and should be kept in airtight container or dry glass jar. No need refrigerate it. This goes well with dosa, idly or rice. No need to add oil while eating this.
Dry /fresh coconut 2
Red chillies 25 to 30
Tamarind small lemon size
Garlic 2 big pods
Salt to taste
Grate coconut and put in mixer for 2 seconds.
Then dry roast them till dark brown.
Crush the garlic properly(otherwise it will pop up or burst out of the pan while frying) with skin then fry them in oil till brown and keep aside.
In the same oil fry the red chillies for 2 to 3 min. Let everything to cool properly.
Then powder red chillies into fine transfer into a bowl.
Then powder fried coconut and fried garlic and tamarind into powder.
Mix all powder together add salt and mix well.
Store this into clean dry jars or airtight containers.
