Coconut Chutney

I made this coconut and tamarind flavored chutney to go along with a rice-based dish known as pongal that will leave you begging for seconds. It works well as a spread for flatbreads and sandwiches, and has a dry consistency rather than a creamier one. Best of all, there's no cooking involved and the chutney can be made in 10 minutes or less.

Lisa, your blog is inspiring me to try more and more of Indian food. I can't wait for the pairing for this chutney, but surely also a spreadable form, like the book suggests, must be really good.
