Coconut sesame chutney recipe, til nariyal chutney

Sesame coconut chutney, also known as nariyal aur til ki chutney, is one of the favorite accompaniments for South Indian delicacies like dosas, and paniyarams. This is my mom-in-law’s recipe and it is a variation of the conventional coconut chutney recipe that you often get in the restaurants. She passed on the recipe to me and I had to make it perfectly because my husband likes this sesame coconut chutney so much.

Recently I made sesame coconut chutney for rice idlis. The pairing was just perfect. The smoky flavor from green chilies and garlic and the earthiness from asafoetida lend this sesame seed chutney a very distinct taste.
