Kobbari – Kandi Pachadi (Coconut-Toor Dal Chutney)

Kobbari – Kandi Pachadi (Coconut-Toor Dal Chutney)

I know I’ve been away for a while from my blog. Life becomes hectic sometimes. But I haven’t forgotten my blog and I haven’t stopped cooking too. Whenever I get a feeling to update, some other works come in the way and the posting takes the back seat. That’s why DH always tells me to make a time table of things to do and follow it. Of course, I made such time tables many times but never followed them. I hope to keep my blog updated frequently from now on.

Anyways, let's come back to today’s recipe. As I always tell you, we are great fans of all kinds of chutneys and pickles. So I try different kinds of chutneys at home that go well with rice as well as idlis/upma etc. Today’s recipe is a yummy combo of coconut and pigeon peas (toor dal). It’s a lovely chutney recipe that tastes so great.

  • 1 cup Pigeon Peas (కందిపప్పు, Toor Dal)
  • ½ cup Coconut Pieces (fresh) (approx. half a shell of coconut)
  • 10 Dry Red Chilies
  • 2-3 cloves of Garlic
  • 1 tsp Tamarind Pulp
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Salt
  1. Dry roast toor dal + red chilies separately and transfer to a plate to cool.
  2. Add toor dal + red chilies + garlic + cumin seeds + salt to a blender jar and grind into a paste by adding little amount of water.
  3. Then add coconut pieces + tamarind pulp and run the blender again until the contents grind into a paste.
  4. That’s all! Great tasting pachadi is ready to be savored. Transfer the pachadi to a serving bowl and enjoy with steaming hot rice and little ghee. Yummy!!
  5. If desired, we can add seasoning to the above pachadi before serving.

Thanks for the New Year's wishes Uma. Hope you are doing great. It's true that even though we like cooking we don't always have the interest or time to blog about it regularly. I too go through that phase every now and then.

You are the chutney queen. This one looks great too. I'm really loving this combination. I think I'm going to try it today itself.

Hi Uma, I did try this on the same day and loved it so much. I fried the garlic too slightly along with the pappus. This one is going to be a regular for me. Thanks for posting the recipe.
