Dry coconut chutney is an extremely versatile condiment that, unlike other chutneys, comes in a powdered form, making it easier to experiment with the ingredients and adjust their proportions to suit your taste. The coconut and all of its assets, from its taste to its nutritional and health benefits, help make this recipe a must–have in your cooking repertoire.
All chutneys possess a degree of health benefits; rarely will you find a truly unhealthy chutney. This chutney derives the majority of its benefits and nutrition profile from its primary ingredient, coconut. Coconut posesses anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, which alleviate some of the stress your immune system typically experiences. It also functions as an energy booster, thereby improving metabolism. Coconut also helps prevent cancer by removing free radicals from the body; free radicals are responsible for cancer, aging, and certain degenerative diseases.
