Coconut Chutney (Chatini Coco)

Chutney’s are a huge part of Mauritian food.  They are often served as an accompaniment to main meals like curry, or eaten on their own with Mauritian flat breads.  This chutney is fresh enough to perfectly complement a spicy meal – and ridiculously simple to make!  You can use dessicated coconut to make it, but fresh coconut will make it taste amazing and give it a moist, mildly sweet flavour that dried coconut lacks.


½ coconut grated
1 tablespoon tamarind
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons mint leaves
½ onion
chillies (to taste)


Process in a food processor until smooth.
