If you like dried fish recipes, you will like this too..This goes well with Kanji(rice gruel) or rice and curd or Kachiya Moru.
Dried prawns - 1 cup
Dry red chillies - 4 to 6
Shallots - 3 to 4, sliced
Shredded coconut - 1/2 to 3/4 cup
Tamarind - a small piece
1. Wash the dried prawns well to get rid of any impurities. Drain to tissue paper.
2. Heat about 2 tsp oil in a pan and add dry red chillies and shallots. When shallots start turning light brown, add the dried prawns and saute for a few minutes. Add shredded coconut and salt. No need to roast the coconut much, just combine everything well and saute for 1-2 minutes.
3. Let this cool a little and then grind coarsely along with tamarind and 1-2 tsp of water. This is a dry chutney, so no need to add more water.
4. You may do a seasoning with a little oil, mustard seeds and curry leaves. But that is optional.
