Curry Leaves Chutney Powder


After lot of meetings, complicated agreements my mind just needs to relax and from the way to office my mind only thinks of sleeipng ......No cooking mood . But I cant let my dear ones at home go to bed without having dinner :(.

So usually on the weekend I try to make two to three types  chutney powder / gojju's which can be just mixed with the steamed rice. So this weekend I made one of my fvourite chutney powder.

Curry Leaves Chutney Powder- Curry Leaves dried and infused with Indian Spices

Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Difficulty Level: easy
Shelf Life: 2 weeks stored in air tight jar
Served with: White/Rosametta steamed rice with a dollop of Ghee/butter


1 cup curry leaves
1/4 cup copra/ dry coconut/fresh
2 tbsp. coriander /dhaniya seeds
1tbsp jeera/cumin seeds
1/4 tsp. methi/fenugreek seeds
1 /4 tsp. turmeric/haldi powder
10-12 red chilli (increase if you want it spicy)
A pinch of hing / asfeatodia
1 tsp. sugar
Marble sized tamarind
Salt to taste
2 tsp. oil


Take a pan add the oil and start frying the red chillies till it becomes little swollen in the size. Then add coriander seeds, jeera, hing, and fenugreek and fry till nice aroma comes. Keep it aside to cool down.

In a different pan add coconut (this is only if you are using the fresh coconut) fry till it turns golden brown (without adding any oil). Finally add the fresh curry leaves and fry till its crispy. You can also use microwave to crisp it for 30 seconds.

Once everything is cooled down add all the ingredients in a mixer / blender and powder it (coarse). Store it in an airtight jar. 

This is served well with white steamed rice with a dollop of ghee
