A simple, healthy & delicious accompaniment to all kinds of South Indian rice breads or rice. Great for those looking for vegan options.
cup grated coconut
small onion (or 1/2 a medium sized one chopped)
raw mango, chopped
1/4 tsp of tamarind (optional)
curry leaves (karipatta)
salt to taste
Grind all the ingredients with very little water to yield a thick coarse paste (don't grind it too fine). Transfer into a bowl & serve.
1. 1 tbsp raw mango is about 1 slice of a lemon sized raw mango - adjust to taste especially if you intend using the tamarind as well.
2. Instead of the curry leaves you may use mint leaves (approx 1 tbsp) or use both for an added flavour.
