Hello friends
Welcome to ''my cuisine''. According to me cuisine or the culinary art is just that an art. The art of creating delicious foods with a conscience to health has various dimensions with which we can experiment and I have just started to experiment in my kitchen. There is nothing more heartwarming than a hot aroma filled food on a cold rainy day to cheer us up or nothing more satisfactory than satisfying the taste buds of our loved and dear ones.This was the reason i found my new love for cooking. Hope you would enjoy my various recipes......

Coconut sambal

This is a chutney which can be used for idly, dosa or can be stirred through rice to go along with fried chicken or cauliflower. It is also a good side dish for the lemon rice or tamarind rice. Hope you like it.

  • Coconut - 1
  • garlic- 4 cloves
  • Green chillies - 3
  • Red chillies - 2
  • Grated ginger - 1 tbsp
  • Coconut milk - 4 tbsps
  • salt to taste
  • Lemon juice - 3 tbsps
  • Onion - 1
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Black mustard seeds - 1 tbsp
  • Few curry leaves
  • Ground cumin - 3 tbsps
  • Turmeric - 1 tbsp
  • Chop the coconut into small pieces. Crush the garlic. Deseed the chillies and slice them.
  • mix the coconut, garlic, chillies with coconut milk, salt and lemon juice. Blend it to a puree.
  • Splutter the mustard seeds in the oil, add the curry leaves, onions. Season with the cumin powder and saute them. stir this in the coconut mixture.
  • Serve hot or cold as a meal accompaniment.
I find that this sambal is delicious when served with the lemon rice. To serve for the dosa or idly just add a bit of water. You can make it as hot as you want it. Just increase the red chillies.
