Kariveppila Chammanthi | Kerala Style Curry Leaves Chutney


Chammanthi is nothing but a Kerala style dry chutney made with coconut, chillies and other additions like shallots, ginger, tamarind etc. In olden times, it is grind in a ammikallu (stone grinder), which gives the best flavor. Chammanthi with a bowl of steaming rice is one of my comfort food any day. Also see my Kerala style thenga (coconut) chammanthi and pacha manga (raw mango) chammanthi recipes.

Today's chammanthi/chutney is my mom's special recipe and one I relish a lot just with plain rice. This is a no-onion no-garlic chutney recipe with very few easy ingredients. The star of this chutney is the curry leaves, which imparts a lovely flavor and aroma to the chammanthi. Enjoy with hot steaming rice or serve along with rasam or molagootal
