NKGSB style Lasni chutney is a unique and absolutely delicious chutney made by the NKGSB community of Karwar to be had with idlis or dosas. It is basically a garlic and coconut chutney made up of a very few but healthy ingredients.

This chutney, even today is my personal favourite and a comfort food for me when combined with varan bhaat (daal rice)!


1 cup Fresh grated coconut

4 – 5 Garlic cloves (medium size)….. to be adjusted

1 tsp Red chilli powder…. to be adjusted

1/2 tsp Tamarind …….to be adjusted

Salt taste


1. To begin making lasun chutney, grind together all given ingredients in a mixer grinder using sufficient water. Do maintain the thickness of the chutney.

2. Check seasoning.

3. Serve this delicious NKGSB Style Lasni Chutney with idlis, dosas, Ghaavan, Bhaakari or Rawaa Taandalaache Poale.


For this chutney, too much of garlic isn’t used. The taste of the chutney should be checked after grinding and more garlic should be added only if required. The taste should be slightly garlicky with a slight hint of tanginess from the tamarind!

This super tasty lasun chutney tastes very good even with some varan bhaat (daal rice) or hot bhaakari and smashed raw onion by the side!

An artist by nature, I love painting, travelling to different places and photographing nature, gardening, crochet, reading, etc. It's my nature to give my best to anything and everything I do. From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste. Started this blog to share a few recipes of mine with all other cooking enthusiasts! Happy cooking to all! 😃
