Unakka Mulaku Thenga Chammanthi

Unakka Mulaku Thenga Chammanthi (Roasted Dry Red Chilly & Coconut Chutney) is one of my favourite during my childhood. My Grandma used to prepare this on traditional “Ammi Kallu” (hand grinder), it’s so mouthwatering and spicy accomplishment with Rice or “Kanji” (Gruel).
