  • 1 cup Grated Coconut
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Raw Mango (pacha manga) chopped (adjust according to the sourness)
  • 1.5 tsp Crushed red chilli refer notes
  • 3-4 Small onion / Pearl onion sliced
  • 1/2 tsp Chopped Ginger
  • 2 Curry leaves do not add more, it will give a bitter taste
  • Salt to taste


  • Grind together all the ingredients, preferably without water, till all the ingredients are incorporated. Once you grind it, try shaping into a ball & see whether its holding the shape, then your chammanthi is ready :)


Try not to add water, but if your mixie doesnt cooperate, you can add a tiny bit. Also if you dont have crushed red chilli, you can use 3-4 whole dried red chilli. Do a taste test of the mango first to see the sourness & add accordingly.
