Cooking time




  • 2-3 medium sized spring onions

  • 3/4 cup grated coconut

  • 1 walnut sized tamarind

  • 4 dried red chilies

  • Salt to taste

  • 1 tablespoon of oil


  • Heat oil in a tempering pan, add in the dried red chilies and fry them on medium flame for 2-3 minutes. Fry until you get an aroma of dried red chilies. Put off the flame and set it aside to cool.
  • Once the chilies cool down, grind them along with grated coconut, tamarind & salt into a smooth paste, adding enough water. The chutney is usually of thick consistency so add just enough water to form a smooth paste.
  • Transfer the ground chutney into a bowl.
  • Add finely chopped spring onions to the ground chutney and mix well. For an extra crunch while you eat tambali with rice, add more onions to it.
  • Serve with a bowl of steaming hot rice or steaming hot conjee and enjoy! They go well with curd rice too.
