In a Pan ,Dry roast Garlic pods with their skin for 1-2 minutes or till warm. Let it cool in a Plate. In the same Pan, Dry roast Red chilies and then the Coconut. Or we can microwave them also ( Red Chilies and Coconut only)  for 10 -10 seconds and check with fingers for warmness. Let them cool down to room temperature.


Now in a blender ,first blend the Red Chilies, Then you can add roasted Garlic with skin for blending and finally add Desiccated Coconut and Salt as per Taste. Grind into coarse powder, no need to add water.


And your Dry Coconut Chutney is ready, store in a air tight container. It stays good for 10 -15 days.
