Biriyani Chammanthi(chutney) | Green Chammanthi

Biriyani chammanthi (chutney)is the main accompaniment with my yesterday's post of Thalassery Chicken biriyani along with dates pickle. This chutney has the aroma of mint and cilantro,very flavorful and delicious with the added coconut in it.This helps in digesting the rich biriyani too.Lemon juice or yogurt adds the tangy flavors.We just loved this combo with biriyani,it was exotic.If you make biriyani,you should definitely give this tongue tickling chutney or chammanthi a try-will love it !!




Ingredients
grated coconut 1 cup
green chillies 3-5 (depending on your spice level)
cilantro 4-5 sprigs
mint leaves 2tbsp
ginger 1/2" piece
garlic 1 clove
lemon juice 2tsp
salt as required



Method
  •  Blend all the ingredients with little water except lemon juice in a blender until smooth.
  • Add the lemon juice and adjust salt.
  • Serve with thalassery chicken biriyani !!


Servings ~ 4-5 people

NOTES
* You can add yogurt too instead of lemon juice.the yogurt should be slightly sour.
* You can add more water for a watery consistency.

Simple and humble chammanthi!
Love the slightly greenish color of mint/cilantro leaves on the chutney.
Looks like a great combination not just with biriyani, I guess can have this with dosa/idli too!
