GARLIC CHUTNEY

INGREDIENTS
1 cup dry grated coconut
6 big garlic cloves
2 tsps red chili powder
2 tsp white sesame seeds
½ tsp cumin seeds
10 peanuts
1 tsp sugar
Salt to taste

PREPARATION

Roast the peanuts on a hot skillet, stirring constantly. Set aside.

Roast the grated coconut slowly over a medium heat in the same skillet, until light brown and crisp, stirring constantly to avoid burning. Set aside.

Also roast sesame seeds and cumin until golden.

Use a blender and grind together the roasted sesame and cumin seeds and garlic cloves together to form a coarse mixture.

Mix the mixture into the coconut. Add the chili powder, salt and sugar. Do not add water in it.

Crush the mixture using a mortar and pestle until all the ingredients are well blended. The mixture will turn pulpy and finally form a soft ball as the coconut and sesame seeds release oil.
You may use a blender if you like, but the character of this chutney is coarse and grainy, and Indians believe the true tastes of blending come from the mortal and pestle.

Serve with hot batata wadas or any
