  • 3/4 th cup grated coconut
  • 1 small onion (or 1/2 a medium sized one chopped)
  • 1 inch ginger, chopped
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tbsp raw mango, chopped
  • 1 small piece 1/4 tsp of tamarind (optional)
  • 3-4 curry leaves (karipatta) optional
  • salt to taste
  1. 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.
Recipe Notes

1. 1 tbsp raw mango isĀ 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.
