ERRA KOBBARI PACHADI (COCONUT CHUTNEY WITH DRY RED CHILLIES)

In Andhra Pradesh (South India) break fast means idli, dosa, oothappam, pesarattu for all these breakfast varieties normally we make coconut chutney as a side dish. At my place every day grating coconut is the first work, Amma use to make 1 full coconut chutney for every day and also she makes each day a different coconut chutney. This erra kobbari pachadi is my mom's specialty I must say. When ever I make this pachadi I don’t get the taste like what Amma use to make. This erra kobbari pachadi is a perfect combination for dosa and hot steamed rice with a drop of ghee. I am missing my mom s cooking a lot.............
INGREDIENTS:-----
Fresh grated coconut --- 1
Dry red chilies – 5 (spicy red chilies like Guntur dry red chilies or Thai red chilies which is little high in spice)
Kashmiri red chilies or badegi dry red challis --- 3 ( this red chilies are less spicy and gives a very good color to the chutney)
Coriander seeds – 1 tab sp
Cumin seeds – 1&1/2 tea sp
Channadal – 1 tab sp (split chick peas)
Urad dal --- 1/2 tab sp
Mustard seeds – 1 tea sp
Fenugreek seeds – 1/4 tea sp
Tamarind – 1 inch pieces 2 or 1/2 tea sp paste
Grated jaggery – 1 tab sp
Salt to taste
Oil – 1 tea sp

Photobucket METHOD:----
1. Heat oil in a pan and add channa dal, urad dal, and fry till nice golden color remove and leave a side.
2. Now add coriander seeds to the same oil and fry for a while then add cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds and fry for a sec. remove and add this to channa dal and urad dal and leave a side.
3. Now add both red chilies to the same pan and fry for a while remove and add to fried dale s and coriander seeds.
4. Soak tamarind in warm water for 10 min, if you are using pieces.
5. Now grind all this fried ingredients with tamarind, grated jaggery and grated coconut with salt and 1 tab sp water in to a fine paste
6. Check the seasoning and adjust the taste and remove in to a bowl and serve with dosa or with hot steamed rice.
