How to Make Garlic Dry Chutney

  • In a thick bottomed kadai, add ghee and roast garlic in a slow flame till it becomes golden in colour.
  • Add the grated copra/desiccated coconut and red chillies.
  • Roast it on a low flame till it evenly browns. Keep stirring to avoid burning.
  • Add tamarind and salt to taste and mix well.
  • Powder in a mixer. Do not run the mixer for long or else the oil will ooze out (which will not affect the taste in any way).
  • Let it cool and then store in an air-tight container.
  • Tastes great with rice and dal.
