Roasted Cashew and Coconut Chammanthi

Print Pin
Servings: 3 -4
Author: Maria Jose


  • 1 cup Grated Coconut
  • 10-15 Cashew
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Green mango ((adjust the qty according to sourness, refer notes))
  • 4 Dry red chilli (refer notes)
  • 1 tsp Chopped Ginger
  • 4 Small onion / Pearl onion (sliced)
  • 1 stem Curry leaves


  • Dry roast the cashews till it turns golden brown. Let it cool. Grind the roasted cashews first till you get a fine powder. Pulse it at regular intervals instead of grinding at once.
  • Roast the dry chilli directly on flame (refer notes).
  • Grind roasted dry chilli, mango, small onion, ginger, salt till you get a smooth paste. Add coconut and grind till everything is mixed well. Add cashew powder to this and run in a mixie for a few seconds.
  • Add water for grinding only if your mixie doesnt cooperate, without water.


If you have roasted cashew, you can use that. But in that case, adjust the salt level, since the roasted nuts are already salty.
If you dont have green mango, you can use tamarind instead. Also, if you have electric cooking range, fry the dry chilli in a bit of oil.
If you like a less spicy version, remove seeds from chillies.

  1. I tried the chammanthi yest..and it was super good. The bad thing is me and my husband ate more rice ;) than usual … Thanks Maria.

  2. I’m definitely going to try out this recipe. I just love coconut chamanthi recipes. It wld be great if you could post the dry and spicy coconut podi chamanthi. I have always wanted to make that. Also wld like to let u know that the vegetable biryani was a hit at my place. I used to always make it minus a few of the spices. Somehow I always felt that something was missing. This time it was superb and it came out just the way how my mom used to make for us. Got me really emotional. Thanks a ton Maria!

    • Thank you Yasmine :) How are you doing?

      Hope you get to try this chammanthi soon. I’ve tried a few versions of Chammanthi podi, but still not happy with the results. As you’ve said, I feel like something is missing and not quite adding up.

      Hopefully I get to try it successfully soon. Btw, so happy to hear that Veg biriyani was a hit at your place. Thanks for letting me know about it :)



Have you tried this out? We'd love to hear your thoughts...
