When I wanted to post Karuveppilai Podi, I came to know that even karuveppilai chutney also can be made. So tried making it last week with idli and it was really good. I love this chuntey for its health benefits of curry leavesNerd. Its easy like making coconut chutney … SO make this often for your family as its very good for your health.

Curry leaves chutney recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast- sides
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 4


Coconut, scrapped  1/2 cup 
Urad dal  1 tblsp 
Curry leaves  2 sprigs 
Green chillies (or red)  6 
Tamarind  1/8 tsp 
Turmeric  1/8 tsp 
Salt and water  As needed 


To temper

Oil 2 tsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp


  1. Roast urad dal in 1/2 tsp until golden brown. Add curry leaves, fry green chillies and asafoetida after urad dal gets roasted. Grind urad dal, turmeric, asafoetida, coconut, tamarind along with salt and water until smooth.
  2. 1-karuveppilai-chutney


  • Adding turmeric gives a cool green colour. I use milk while grinding if the coconut is not fresh, that also adds for getting this cool green. Try this for any green chutney.
  • You can replace urad dal with channa dal and green chilli with red chilli too...

Season with mustard and mix well. Serve with Idli/ dosa or upma.

  1. I always add a sprig of curry leaves in my regular coconut chutney.This one looks great,I am sure it would have tasted great with idli!

  2. If am not wrong, guess u missed out "Curry Leaf" in Ingredients part... BTW, its the best healthy chutney... Just a small tip, can also add Bengal Gram to avoid adding much coconut, which also gives thickness. :)

  3. looks like u missed out curry leaves in ingredients list..I too make this chutney and I love the flavor of it..we also make pacchadi wid curry leaves for rice which is also very delicious

  4. Hi Rak,
