This chutney keeps very well. So you can make it ahead of time and refrigerate it for up to a week and use it as and when you need to.
Here’s a few options on what you can do with this spread –
1) Chutney sandwich – Spread it over some buttered slices of bread. I think it goes well with slightly toasted slices as well.
2) Chutney Cheese sandwich – Butter a slice of bread and spread some of the chutney over it. Top with a slice of cheese or grated cheese, whatever you have at hand. Cover this with another slice of bread.
3) Veggie Delight sandwich – Butter a slice of bread and spread some of the chutney over it. Place some slices of tomato and cucumber on it. Cover this with another slice of bread.
These are just a few sandwich combos to get you started. I’m sure you’ll come up with many more and I’d love to hear about them. And oh yes, how can I forget –
4) With rice – On days of fasting, my mum used to serve us this chutney with a small portion of warm, plain rice to get us through the day.
Check out how I make my Coconut & Coriander Chutney here –
Coconut Coriander Chutney
1 cup freshly grated coconut
1 large bunch of fresh coriander, leaves and tender stalks (About 1 tightly packed cup)
6 small cloves of garlic or 2 large cloves of garlic
1 green/red chilly
1 tbsp sugar
1 walnut sized ball of tamarind, soaked in 1/4 cup water
Salt to taste
Tip all the ingredients except the coconut into a blender or food processor. Blitz to form a puree.
Add the coconut and blitz again. You can leave this spread as coarse or grind it as finely as you like. I like it ground fine but not too fine. You may need to add a dash of water to help the ingredients grind well.
Taste and adjust the flavors, if needed.
Store in a container, refrigerate for up to a week and use as and when needed.

I have been thinking about this chutney spread and I want to make an egg roll with a tortilla, dipped in egg, fried up a little and then put that chutney on it…
That sounds yummy Jen!
