South Indian Coconut Chutney Powder With Buttered Basmati Rice
15 mins (prep 15)

This is an adopted recipe. Here's what the original chef had to say about it: "This is a dish I learned to cook from my friend from Hyderabad, India. Don’t let the name fool you – its coconut, yes, but this is not like eating a Mounds candy bar – it’s not sweet at all. The powder is a condiment, served with buttered basmati rice and it is delicious. It’s Indian comfort food! I usually make a batch of the powder at the beginning of the summer and it lasts for a while. Serve the buttered rice combination with chicken or fish grilled on the BBQ – it’s delicious and people will ask you what this is – it is not a heavy coconut flavor at all! Dry roasted channa dal, coconut powder and the other ingredients are available at Indian grocery stores. You will need a food processor and a coffee/spice grinder. You could easily cut the recipe in half if you are afraid to make that much of a commitment. Naturally you do not have to make so much rice, but this will give you an idea of the proportion of rice to powder…for an individual serving, you can add a teaspoon or two of the powder to your buttered rice. Two cups of basmati rice will serve about 8 to 10 people – it’s relative. The powder recipe makes 5 cups. Prep time reflects the time it takes to make the powder."
