Dried Prawns Chutney

ഉണക്ക ചെമ്മീന്‍ ചമ്മന്തി 

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.
