Instant Green Chatnipudi (ಹಸಿ ಚಟ್ನಿಪುಡಿ) & Capsicum Sabji

Yet another weekend recipe by Ms. Bhavana Damle. Thanks again, Bhavana.

Green Chatnipudi

Instant Green Chatnipudi (ಹಸಿ ಚಟ್ನಿಪುಡಿ)


  • 1 cup grated dry coconut
  • 2 table spoons Hurigadale (putani)
  • 3 green chillies
  • 5 springs Curry leaves
  • 1/2  teaspoon tamarind powder / tamarind pieces
  • ½  teaspoon salt
  • A pinch of sugar


Grind all the above items together  and make a coarse powder.

This chatnipudi with curd is our favorite with akki rotti, jolada rotti and ragi rotti.

If you want to preserve this for long time , fry the dry coconut, green chillies and curry leaves before grinding. However, without frying also you can preserve it by keeping in the refrigerator.

  • 2 table spoons ground nuts
