 I would like to start with a simple and tasty chutney powder recipe. This is a perfect side dish for hot rice, dosa, idli and chapatis...Simple and yummilicious. I give here the measurements for one cup of copra. It can be doubled as per requirement.


The ingredients are simple and available at home usually.

Grated Copra          -  1 cup
Garlic cloves           -  5 to 6 ( optional)
Red chilli powder   - 1 tsp
( Byadigi red chilli can be used 2 or 3 red chillies in that case)      Tamarind                -  small marble size
Jaggery                  -   1 tsp 
Salt                         - to taste


  1. Dry roast the grated copra, till the remaining moisture evaporates, Keep aside.
  2. Garlic is optional but adds to the taste.
  3.  Peel and dry roast the Garlic cloves to take out the slight moisture in it so that the Powder can be stored for long. 
  4. Turn the heat off and add the red chilli powder ( dry roast the red chilli if you are using the chillies instead of powder) and salt to the garlic and let it stay for a while. 
  5. Dry Grind together Copra, Garlic, salt and chilli powder.
  6. Add the jaggery and Tamarind and grind again till it mixes well. 

 Your Kobri Chutney powder is ready.

Enjoy with food of your choice...

Dear Friends,

It has been about 18 months or more since the blog is updated.. A lot has happened hence the delay. My aunt L who is person who cooks so well is going to be the guest author from now on. She is going to make a series of the forgotten recipes of Karnataka cuisine like karesa, vaddamuruka , menthye gojju ,,, yum I am already drooling. Watch out this space regularly from now on for the recipes from her. I also think it should be a good Idea to start a page on FB with the same name? so that its easier to look into.
