Tomato Coconut Chammanthi

This a spicy as well as tangy condiment that pairs very well with your dosas or idlis. Feel free to decrease or increase the spice level as per your taste. The below measurement will yield you a moderately spicy chammanthy. The flavour imparted from the roasted red chillies, combined with the sour taste of the tomatoes and then mixed with the natural sweetness the coconut, makes this chammanthy really delicious. A perfect combination of flavours!


1 medium tomato chopped
3-4 whole red chilies (as per your spice level)
1 cup grated coconut
salt to taste
1.5 Tbsp oil

  • Heat the oil in a pan.
  • Toss the red chilies and fry for a few seconds.
  • Add the chopped tomato and fry on high heat until the tomato turns soft and starts getting charred slightly.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Add the grated coconut and mix everything well and remove from heat. Allow it to cool.
  • Once cooled, grind coarsely without adding water.
  • Serve with piping hot crispy dosas or soft idlis.
