If you are crazy about dishes with coconut, you will definitely liking this. Its a very famous recipe made in kerala which has lot of coconut grinded. I love to taste Theeyal with hot rice and fish fry. My Amma makes this very perfect as the chilli powder as her’s, it’s really hot and it has nice color. Here in US, I could nt find chilli powder as good as my Amma’s, perhaps I managed to bring the color but I succeed to get the exact taste how she used to prepare :).


  • Tamarind- Less than a half lemon size
  • Green chillies- 2 small nos(Cut into lengthy shape)
  • Mustard- 1 Tspn
  • Curry Leaves- 10 nos
  • Oil
  • Salt-To Taste
  • Coriander Leaves-a small bunch.
  • Small Onion- half cup

To Grind:

  • Small Onion- 3 Nos
  • Chilli powder- 2 Tspn
  • Coriander Powder-1 Tspn
  • Coconut- Half Cup


  • Smash the tamarind in little water with thick consistency and keep aside.
  • Pour little oil in a pan, add all the items under To Grind list, adding all the powders as last so that the powder will not get over fried and do not let the mixture to be at the stove for long time after adding the powders.
  • Set it cool and grind this adding little water to a fine paste and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a separate pan, add mustard,curry leaves,green chillies and small onions and stir well,add the grinded paste and tamarind paste with salt and stir well adding coriander leaves at the last.
" If you cook this receipe with coconut oil, it gives nice taste perhaps you can cook with normal oil if you don’t like to be cooked with coconut oil.

Fry all the items under to grind list with less flame.Care should be taken not to over fry this items.

Do not keep the mixture in the stove for long time after adding the powders."
