Red coconut chutney is a simple side dish that can be served with breakfast dishes like Idli, Dosa, Uttapam, Mysore bonda, Medu vada or Upma. It is spicy, tangy and nutty. There are so many variations to this chutney and I will share the recipes in later blog posts.

I have added peanuts in this recipe but if you are allergic to peanuts you can use cashew nuts, which will give a nice thickness and creaminess to the chutney. Also I have added shallots in this chutney but if you do not have shallots, you can simply use regular red onions.

If you prefer you can add green chilies but to give the Red coconut chutney a nice red color, please try to add Kashmiri red chilies or Bydagi chilies. Adding red ripe peppers or red bell peppers give a nice color too.

Fresh coconut is always preferred  for Red coconut chutney but I also often use frozen shredded coconut that is available in the freezer section of Indian groceries. For tanginess I have added tamarind in the recipe but you can substitute it with lemon/lime juice.
