(makes 7 servings)

  • ½ cup sesame seeds (white)     

  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut        

  • 3 red chilies (adjust based on your spice preference)

  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds  

  • ¼ tsp oil  

  • 1 tsp sugar                   

  • Salt to taste            

How to prepare:

  1. Heat a pan and add the sesame seeds. Roast them on a low flame until golden brown. The seeds will start to crackle when they are roasted and they also become very aromatic. Set aside in a bowl

  2. In the same pan, roast the desiccated coconut until it turns light brown (this does not take more than a minute). Add it into the bowl with the roasted sesame seeds

  3. Add the drop of oil in the pan and roast the red chilies and set aside

  4. Dry roast the cumin seeds until fragrant and then set aside along in the same bowl as the other cooked ingredients

  5. Add the salt to the hot pan and roast it for 10 seconds. This step helps remove the moisture from the salt and extends the shelf life of the chutney

  6. Now add the sugar into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients and let it all cool down to room temperature

  7. Grind the red chilies into a coarse powder and then add then grind all ingredients together into a coarse powder using a blender. Be sure to grind in short spurts. Sesame seeds have high oil content and can become like a paste if ground for too long

  8. Transfer the til chutney into an airtight container and let it cool down for a few more minutes before shutting it
