BM #115 Week 2 Day 2 - 

Today is the turn of a simple and basic kobbari perugu pacchadi (Coconut Raita). This was the first time I made this at home and loved every morsel of this chutney with steamed rice.

Another point of note in the simple meal above is that it is a no vegetable meal - Plain dal with Tadka, Nuvvula Karam Podi, Kobbari Perugupacchadi and rice.

Ingredients - 

Coconut shredded 1 cup
Salt as needed
Green Chilies 4-5 (or as needed)
Yogurt 1/2 cup
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1/2 tsp, Jeera 1/4 tsp, Curry leaves few, Red chili 1, Asafotida 2 pinches)

Method Of Preparation -

Grind the coconut, green chilies and salt adding as little water as possible.

Mix it in half a cup of beaten yogurt.

Prepare the seasoning by heating oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients.

After the mustard seeds pop and the dals are brown, remove from heat, allow the seasoning to cool down and then mix it into the coconut chutney.

Mix well and serve with Idli/Dosa or even with rice.
