Garlic Chutney (Konkani Style)

Garlic has many health benefits, such as treating allergies, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and toothaches.
This version of Garlic Chutney is the Mangalore Konkani version which uses fresh or desiccated coconut.
This chutney is a very good accompaniment with dosas and chapatis.

It can also be used as a side dish with rice and dal/rasam.
And tastes good as a sandwich spread too.
If the coconut and garlic are roasted well before preparation it can last for a few days without refrigeration and hence can be used during long journeys.

Garlic - 8 cloves
Dry red chilly - 5
Coconut - 1/2 cup (fresh grated or desiccated)
Tamarind piece or Amchur /dry mango powder - 1 tsp
Wet grind along with a few tbsps of water, garlic, dry red chillies, coconut and tamarind/amchur to a smooth paste.
Serve with dosa or Chapatis or use as a sandwich spread.
