Idli Chutney with Coconut


Idli Chutney with Coconut is an authentic dish of South India 

It is a dish favorite for all ages of people. Children love idli for their softness, so do the Elderly. Idli has no spices 

I have made idli chutney recipe  as it is a favorite with all my family members 

Idli is a rice cake, made by steaming of batter consisting of fermented Urad dal(De Husked Black Gram and rice)

idli batter ingredients

Idli chutney with coconut is a traditional dish of South India viz Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Andra Pradesh, and Telangana 

It came to India via Indonesia which was ruled by Hindu Kings in 800 to 1200 CE. The cooks of the Hindu Kings might have invented it by steaming there and brought it to India

Variations of Idli are Button Idli, Rava Idli, Sambar Idli, Sanna 

Now let us see

How to Make Idli Batter At Home 

For the Recipe of Idli Batter, The Preparation starts on the previous day

  • I took 2 cups of rice ( Brown rice, Basmati Rice, Kolam Rice, any rice will do ) and Urad Dal (De Husked Black gram) 
  • I washed them separately and soaked them separately for 6 to 7 hrs 
  • After 6 to 7 hours I ground Urad dal and rice separately by adding little by little water
  • I now took a big vessel and mixed the two batters and covered them with a heavy lid

There is always a query whether the Idli Dosa batter is the same

Idli Dosa Batter Recipe

It varies a little 

In idli batter, we grind the rice separately and the Urad Dal separately, though the contents of both are the same 

The batter for dosa need not be soaked and ground separately. The rice and urad dal can be ground together to make the batter for Dosa. The procedure is the same 

The next morning the fermented batter puffs to 1 and a half to twice the size we add salt as per taste and with adding one to two teaspoon of water give a nice mix 

There are different idli moulds there are idli stands to put up in pressure cooker or idli moulds in idli vessels 


How to make Idli 

  • Take a pressure cooker remove the whistle and add one and a half cup of water 
  • Keep a ring or a stand in the middle.
  • Keep Aside 
  • Take an idli stand and brush some oil in the idli moulds 
  • Pour the batter in this idli moulds and arrange in the idli stand 
  • Put on the flame to full or high of the gas stove
  • Put this idli stand in the pressure cooker and let them steam for 15 to 20 mins 
  • When done put out the flame of the gas stove 
  • Remove the idli stand and let idlis cool
  • When the idlis cool with the help of a knife or a spatula remove the idlis and keep them in a dish or sieve

Idlis are very easy to digest 

As idlis consisting of rice and Urad Dal are steamed they have minimal to nil oil as they are not fried in oil. They are a good source of breakfast for people on weight loss diet 

Due to fermentation, the nutrients rise to the occasion and we get Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin K, Folic Acid, and Thiamine

Idlis are eaten with Chutney 

Variety of Chutneys :-

  • Freshly grated coconut chutney
  • Dry coconut chutney
  • Onion tomato chutney 
  • Dry coconut garlic chutney 
  •  Green chutney with mint, green chilies, coriander leaves .etc



Coconut Chutney For Idli

 How to Soak Sabudana ?

 This is the main step in Sabudana Khichdi Recipe.

 Take 2 measures / cups of Sago or Sabudana

Soak in water in a pot so the level of the water is twice that of the level of the Sabudana, as the Sabudana swells in size after soaking 

Keep it for 1 to 2 hrs 

Then drain the Sabudana or Sago in a sieve till all the milky water will be drained out 

The older the Sago in the store the more the milky powder will drain out this powder it  gives  stickiness to the Sabudana.In addition, the Khichdi becomes sticky, so to avoid it we wash it properly and drain it.  

Keep the sago draining in the sieve overnight 

The sabudana will have been drained  by next morning and it will get   separated and give a nice taste
