Coconut Pickle

This pickle is one of my favorite pickles. Whenever we get fresh coconuts during festive seasons, we make sure to have this pickle. This time hubby dear made this pickle, which was delicious.


  • ½ shell of a fresh Coconut, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tsp Coriander seeds
  • 3 or 4 dry red Chilies
  • ¼ tsp Asafetida (Inguva, Hing)
  • ½ tsp Tamarind pulp
  • A pinch of Turmeric
  • 3 green Chilies
  • Salt as required
  • 2 tsp Oil


Pour the oil in a pan. When it is hot add coriander seeds and fry till golden brown. Then add red and green chilies and stir well. Fry till the chilies lose color.

Finally add the coconut along with the turmeric and asafetida. The coconut pieces shouldn’t be
fried for a long time.

Transfer the contents to a different plate and let it cool. Then grind the coconut mixture into a coarse paste by adding salt. Add tamarind during halfway of the grinding process. Add little water if needed.

Enjoy this yummy pickle with hot rice and ghee.

hi, I love the pic, and this is my fav with hot rice and ghee, idlis, dosas, chapthis, etc.. my MIL makes this and sends it. My mother makes this without tamarind and uses pepper along with red chillies, and it is more dry powder.

Yummy, Uma, I've never had a coconut pickle before, and it looks gorgeous. I love that creative star shape.
To answer your question about Sweet Vegan, you can definitely use regular sugar. Honey, on the other hand, is not allowed since it is a direct animal product. Thanks for checking!
